I am a first year PhD student in Sociology at Warwick. I previously obtained a BA (Hons) in History at the University of Winchester in 2016. I went on to further obtain a MA in History at the University of Winchester in 2017. During my MA I conducted research into how museums were portraying sixteenth and seventeenth century witchcraft in the UK, Europe and America.
I am interested in public history; community history; LGBTQ+ communities; memory studies; gender and sexuality.
This interest in public history led me to my current research topic. My research project is looking at the way the LGBTQ+ community finds identity in the past and the impact of LGBTQ+ historical representations. I will be conducting interviews with relevant groups in Britain, these include community archives, activist groups and museums. My supervisors are Dr Cath Lambert and Dr Meleisa Ono-George.
