About Me

I am a PhD candidate at the University of York, UK. My thesis examines women in the economy in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, through the lens of carnal sociology. In particular I am interested in skill embodiment practices of early modern women, with a focus on Yorkshire. This has wider implications for the history of gender and work and the inclusion of women in the economy. Broader research interests include gender, race, social history and history of reproduction, particularly midwifery.
