Daniel Waterfield

Daniel Waterfield

History PhD student and Pigott scholar (2015-2018)


I did my BA in English (2012) and MA in 18th Century Worlds (2014) at the University of Liverpool, where I wrote dissertations on Woolf and theatre and Frances Burney's Catholic thought respectively.


Research Interests

I'm writing a thesis on Frances Burney d'Arblay and Anglican womanhood, 1752 - 1840. Broadly, I'm interested in what novels and the families within them can tell us about how eighteenth-century british society saw its Protestant legitimacy and Catholic past. 


I'm happy to supervise either English or History undergraduates in any British religious or literary topic 1688 - 1832.
