Dr Katie Carpenter

Biography content


I completed my PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London in 2019. My doctoral thesis explored the relationship between science and housewifery in the middle-class kitchen in the Victorian and Edwardian periods. More broadly, my research interests are in material culture, women and gender, and the history of science. I joined the Centre for History as a teaching assistant in 2020, having previously taught at a range of universities in and around London.
