A regional-level inquiry into the consequences of deindustrialisation: the ‘unmaking’ of a working class in Britain c. 1960-2010
My research explores the impact of deindustrialisation on people and places which were dependent on industrial employment. It aims to understand how and why experiences of the transformation which occurred in the British economy varied, and how these differences are associated with performance in social and economic indicators. The study is broad, and seeks to clarify why certain industrial legacies have been more damaging than others.
As an undergraduate, I read History and Politics at St Catherine’s College. In the 2018-19 academic year I completed an MSc in Economic and Social History at Mansfield College. My research is funded by an ESRC-Sloane-Robinson scholarship.
