Joshua Hill is a PhD candidate at the University of St Andrews. His research looks at drug use within the context of the Franco Dictatorship, mapping changes in patterns of drug use against societal changes during the four decades of the dictatorship. More broadly, his academic interests encompass identity, subjective experience, memory formation, and gender.
Joshua is also working as part of the ERC-Funded Project: ‘Dictatorship as experience: a comparative history of everyday life and the ‘lived experience’ of dictatorship in Mediterranean Europe, 1922-1975′. Prior to beginning his PhD at St Andrews, Joshua completed a Masters in Contemporary History at the University of Birmingham, with a focus on globalisation and development in post-colonial contexts.
