PhD Candidate in Modern European History

I am completing my doctoral thesis, 'Urban Change, Sexual Politics and Women's Activism in Spain, 1958 to 1982', under the supervision of Dr Lucy Delap and Dr Pedro Ramos Pinto. I receive full funding for my PhD from the Cambridge Trust and King's College, Cambridge. Previously I taught English in Seville. I undertook BA and MA degrees in history at the University of Manchester. 

I am a political and social historian working at the confluence of three intellectual currents: scholarship on Spain; the history of transnational social movements, and the study of subjectivity within oral history and autobiography. My thesis, Urban Change, Sexual Politics, and Women’s Activism in Spain, 1958 to 1982, explores women’s political participation in different and contrasting regions of Spain to assess the relationship between national and transnational movements, and local context.

I have frequently taught on papers 18 and HAP
