Biography

I came to the UEA in 2009, after lecturing at Oxford University, and for the Open University. I am a cultural historian, focusing on interpersonal relationships, material culture, nuisances and domestic and street environments in England. I work primarily on the early modern period, but also sometimes extend my researches into the nineteenth century. I have two published books: Hubbub. Filth, Noise & Stench in England (2007), and Cheek by Jowl. A History of Neighbours (2012). I have also worked on the history of deafness, the human senses, and dogs in the late medieval and early modern period. I am currently working on a history of recycling.
