Gender, Nationhood & Transnational Networks: Anti-Suffrage within the British Empire, 1880-1914.
I hold research interests in women's history, gender and sexuality, imperial history and transnational approaches. Currently, I am working on the women's anti-suffrage movement across the British empire, c.1880-1914. The project seeks to ask why some women did not want enfranchisement, why they did not want other women across the empire to be enfranchised, and what this can reveal about notions of local, national, and imperial governance in this period. My research is supported by the Arts & Humanities Research Council, the Clarendon Fund, and University College.
I completed my undergraduate degree in History at Pembroke College, Oxford, and my Master's degree at the University of Manchester. Before beginning my DPhil project, I spent two years working within Access, Outreach and Widening Participation to higher education, a field in which I retain a keen interest.
