Tim has wide ranging interests in social and environmental histories, historical geographies and digital humanities and also works within the creative economy. His core research has focused in the main on Holocaust landscapes - both historical and memory landscapes - writing books on Holocaust representation (Images of the Holocaust/Selling the Holocaust, 1999), the spatiality of ghettorization in Budapest (Holocaust City, 2003), social histories of the Hungarian Holocaust (Traces of the Holocaust, 2011) and the spatiality of survival (Holocaust Landscapes, 2016) as well as co-editing a collection of essays emerging from an interdisciplinary digital humanities project he co-led (Geographies of the Holocaust, 2015). Alongside this research, Tim has also developed interests in environmental history, being a co-editor of a study of military landscapes (Militarised Landscapes, 2010) and author of About Britain, 2021. He is currently working on two main areas: the application of digital humanities methods within Holocaust studies with a particular interest in spatiality; the role of monuments in 20th and 21st century democracies.
Tim has supervised a wide range of PhD and MPhil topics in Holocaust Studies, environmental and landscape history, public history and contemporary social history. He welcomes proposals in all of these areas.
