Collaborative Doctoral Studentship 2008 –2015
University of Huddersfield, Queensgate, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire
My thesis, entitled ‘Middlesbrough’s Steel Magnates: Business, Culture and Participation, 1880-1934’ explored the engagement of industrialists with the north-east Victorian boom town of Middlesbrough, exploring the role of philanthropy and company paternalism in the wider associational, health and wellbeing of steelworkers in the manufacturing town. The Arts and Humanities Research Council Collaborative Project also involved organising several history conferences and outreach events, presenting research findings at international conferences both within the United Kingdom and overseas and publishing outputs.
