Having completed my undergraduate and master’s degrees at the University of Liverpool, I came to Keele in September 2012. I am currently in the final year of an AHRC funded doctorate, undertaken in collaboration with Staffordshire Record Office.

Supervisors: Alannah Tomkins (lead) and Nigel Tringham

My thesis examines the role of aristocrats and their agents in the nineteenth century growth of industrial towns in Staffordshire. I am specifically examining the impact of the economic and social policies of the dukes of Sutherland and the earls of Bradford on the development of Longton and Walsall respectively.

Supervisors: Alannah Tomkins (lead) and Nigel Tringham

Conference papers given:

January 2014: ‘Both Sides of the Counter: Collaborating with a Record Office’, Making Connections: Collaboration in Research and Practice, King’s College London

 

March 2014: ‘The Potter Family: the Walsall agents of the Earls of Bradford, 1830-1870’, Staffordshire History Day, Kingston Centre, Stafford

In 2014/5 I am scheduled to assist in the Modern Local History Modules  HIS-10035 and HIS-10036, and on HIS-20081 (Victorian Society) as a sessional tutor.
