I am currently turning my doctoral thesis into a book which will be titled Women Art Workers and the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain.
I am also in the process of co-editing two edited collections. The first, forthcoming with Bloomsbury in 2018, is titled Suffrage and the Arts and explores the close links between suffrage and women in the art world (from interior decorators to socialist painters). The second edited collection I am co-editing, provisionally titled Precarious Professionals: Gender, Identity and Social Change in Modern British History, explores the gendered formation of professional identities in Britain from the mid-nineteenth century to the dawn of second-wave feminism.
Broadly I am interested in women’s, gender, and feminist history, social and cultural history, art movements (in particular Pre-Raphaelite, Arts and Crafts, Bauhaus, and the Bloomsbury group) material culture, suffrage, professional identity, and everyday life post 1800.
