Research Interests

Dr. Falcon is a historian of the British Empire in the First World War with an interest in the history of science, the history of religion and the history of emotions. His current research project focuses on the lives of Great War veterans between 1919 all the way into the 1980s. He is particularly interested in examining how disabled veterans coped with war-related debilities and the impact these had on their domestic lives, including rituals of home care, community support systems and spiritual resources. He is also currently writing a manuscript on spiritualism, psychical research and the legacy of the First World War in Britain.
