Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow success

Posted on 1 June 2018

Dr Rachel Delman will join the department in May 2019 as a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow.

Dr Delman, who undertook her PhD at Oxford, is a late medievalist with particular research interests in women’s and gender history, material culture and the built environment.

At York, Rachel will be investigating the architectural patronage of townswomen and county gentlewomen, to consider how women below the level of the nobility shaped and utilised both urban and rural topographies for the display of their wealth, agency and influence.
