About History Lizzie

My name is Lizzie and I am a PhD student, co-supervised at the Universities of Hull and Huddersfield, researching women and their interaction with the world around them through their collections in the English country house during the eighteenth century. My general research areas are Women’s History and History of Art.

Alongside this, I love art, Jane Austen, baking and costume drama. This blog is a way for me to share the interesting stories from my research, as well as tales from other areas of art, history, literature and travel, and I hope you enjoy it.

She had a lively, playful disposition that delighted in anything ridiculous.” – Jane Austen
