Research interests

Based in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, my research interest focuses on two case studies of subversive textile production from women incarcerated in the English asylum and workhouse systems of the nineteenth and early twentieth century. The textile artefacts produced by both women are an important part of the history of asylum life, illustrating the societal expectations of women, how they were subjugated by these, and identifies the men who reinforced them. The experiences are evidenced by both the physical material production, records authored by medical professionals and, in one case, press reports.
