- About Me
I am a Research Fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge. I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge, and have also been a Research Associate on the AHRC-funded project Faith in the Town, 1740-1830, based at the University of Manchester. I am currently working on my monograph, Friends, Neighbours, Sinners: Religious Difference and English Society, 1689-1750, and am also beginning a new project on children’s play in eighteenth-century England. My broader research interests include early modern and eighteenth-century religious, social and cultural history, the history of education, and sensory history.
