While on the RCA/V&A History of Design MA program I developed an expertise in design history, with a focus on eighteenth through to mid-twentieth century social and cultural history as observed in material culture. I am particularly interested in design around women particularly the social constraints and traditions that construct the female in society. As part of my two year MA I spent a semester in New York on a research fellowship at the Bard Graduate Center where I did the majority of my dissertation research. While there I was looking at the importance of Debutantes and the Debutante season during the Gilded Age in New York through material culture. I am now looking to carrying on my research into American culture through object based research, especially in the New York area.
