Research

I am interested in the way citizenship expressed itself in daily life, how people understood and performed their place in society and in relation to the state. I am also interested in the way dress interacted with social structures and social norms, and in what ways people in the past used the dress to perform various identities. My main period of interest is the twentieth-century, with a specific focus on Britain.
