I am a DPhil student in History, working on a comparative study of sex work in the sixteenth century. My research focuses on Lyon, Seville and Mexico City, considering sex workers' relationships with each other and their community through spatial analysis, and material culture. I am particularly interested with colonial constructions of sexuality and gender, and hope to explore histories of marginalised groups involved in sex work.
In addition I have established two student palaeography groups, one for French and one for Iberian languages. These groups operate collaboratively: if you’d like to be involved, please send me an email. Finally, I am the administrative coordinator of the History of the Gendered Body series, which hosts speakers discussing various aspects of history, politics and literature related to gender and embodiment.
