Dr Harry Willis Fleming's research explores primarily topographical, architectural, and spatial themes within cultural history.
Harry's current focus is the nineteenth-century artist and tower-dweller R. C. Lucas (1800-1883), for which he was awarded a Henry Moore Institute Research Fellowship (2012) and a funded PhD Research Studentship at Middlesex University (2012-16). In 2016, he completed his doctoral thesis, 'Artist, Tower, Books: The Memory Theatre of Richard Cockle Lucas'.
Harry has taught on the 'Advanced Research' module of MA Interiors (Architecture and Design) at Middlesex University.
Harry wrote and presented Vapourtrain
(2009) for BBC Radio 3, exploring how steam railway travel transformed notions of time, space, and place.
In 2011, he was awarded a History MRes degree (Master of Research, with Distinction) from the University of Southampton for his dissertation entitled 'The Practice of Viewing the Past: Thomas Hopper (1776-1856) and the Architect's Business'.
Harry originally trained in Theatre Design at Wimbledon School of Art, and worked as a design consultant before taking up research.
