He has held Visiting Fellowships at the University of Southampton (UK), the University of New South Wales and Monash University. He is a specialist in nineteenth and twentieth century Italian history and historiography, including the Italian Risorgimento in transnational context and the difficult heritage of Fascist monuments, monumental art and architecture in postwar Italy. A/Prof Carter has also written and published on the topic of Britain's difficult relationship with the European Union.

    His book Modern Italy in Historical Perspective (London: Bloomsbury Academic, 2010) was described by the Austrian Journal of Politics and History as an 'instant classic alongside works by [Richard] Bosworth, [Denis] Mack Smith and [Paul] Ginsborg.' His edited book, Britain, Ireland and the Italian Risorgimento (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015) has been described by Eugenio Biagini (Cambridge University) as an 'innovative, sophisticated and multi-dimensional reappraisal of some of the key aspects of this fascinating page of transnational history'. His article, 'The meaning of monuments of monuments: remembering Italo Balbo in Italy and the United States' was jointly awarded the Christopher Seton-Watson Memorial Prize for the best article in Modern Italy in 2019.
