In 2017, Brooke completed a PhD on the 17th-century radical publishing and archival habits of the Quakers at UCL, and from 2016-2020 Brooke served as the editor of Printing History. After developing “The Queer Book” at London Rare Book School in 2017, they have continued to teach free history courses in community centres and artist-led spaces.
