Current research Student
I am happy to supervise postgraduate work on any area of social and cultural history in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but especially welcome students interested in the history of death, family and/or emotion, labouring politics, Victorian afterlives, animal studies, cultural histories of the body, sensation fiction, and any cultural-history-inclined trainspotters wanting to study railways. I am particularly keen to promote the study of the Victorian period.
Current and recent PhD students study a diverse range of topics including Chartism and everyday life; the late-Victorian spiritual imagination; children's agency in the Victorian children's home; tapestry as public history; asylum reform and material culture in the early Victorian asylum; America in the victorian imagination; cultures of commemoration in World War One; the death and afterlife of Marilyn Monroe; the tripartite education system and narratives of failure.
