Jennifer Regan-Lefebvre is a historian of modern Britain, Ireland and the British Empire.  She holds a PhD from Queen’s University Belfast and has taught at the University of Exeter, the American University of Paris and the University of Cambridge, where she was a fellow, the Director of Studies in History and the Assistant Tutor at King’s College. 

She is currently writing a monograph provisionally entitled 'Imperial Wine:  The British Empire and the Making of the New World' which examines the growth of wine industries in (former) British colonies.  She is analysing the relationship between production in the colonies and consumption in the metropole and is interested in how the British domestic wine market changed over time, how it shaped production of particular styles of wine, and whether imperial policies stimulated New World production.  Her published research has focused on the Irish in the British Empire, particularly on connections between nationalists in Ireland and India in the late nineteenth century.

Dr Regan-Lefebvre’s teaching takes a world history approach to British and Irish history: she encourages students to consider how events in Britain and Ireland could, and did, have global impact or inspiration. She particularly enjoys seminar teaching and working with students to improve their writing.
