Phoebe Style joined the BCMH Committee in 2020.
She is currently studying for a Masters in History at the University of Southampton, doing one module on cyberterrorism and security, and another on rape as a weapon of war in Yugoslavia / gendered media coverage of the conflict. She is planning to do her dissertation on war correspondents across a selection of modern conflicts. More broadly, her historical interests centre around the social repercussions of war, including the implications of conflict on gender identity, masculinity, and female sexuality. One of the aspects of history she enjoys is analysing patterns in media coverage, and particularly how this changes in times of conflict.
Phoebe is keen to get involved with the social media relations of the commission and interested in devising an effective strategy to boost online engagement via sites like Twitter and Facebook, as this is crucial to attracting new members.
