I'm a philosopher and historian from the University of Southampton. Outside my love for Tudor History, I mostly work and research on contemporary issues in ethics, specifically in relation to sex, education and the law. I've published previously on issues relating to pornography, prostitution, homophobia in football and modern approaches to monogamy and polygamy. I'm also an avid music and theatre music critic and have published for both 'Wessex Scene' and 'The Edge' before.
