- About Me
I was awarded my PhD by the English department at the University of Sussex in 2015. My thesis was entitled ‘Things ‘Necessary’ and ‘Unnecessary’: Trash and Trifles in Early Modern England’. In this work, I examined the shifting representation, and developing use, of the terms trash and trifles in the literature and art of early modern England in response to various crises in spiritual, mercantile and cultural value.
I am now a freelance researcher and lecturer; currently working with Shakespeare’s Globe (Globe Education Lecturer) and the University of Sussex (Researcher for the performance piece – “The Renaissance China Cabinet”)
