Labouring Bodies: Women, Work and Skill in Yorkshire, 1650-1750
Supervisor: Dr Mark Jenner
My thesis examines women in the economy in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, through the lens of carnal sociology. I am researching skill embodiment practices of early modern women, using Yorkshire as a case study. I also completed my Master's degree at York, in which I studied female authorship in early modern England. Wider research interests include gender, race, social history and history of reproduction, particularly midwifery.
