Research Interests

Sarah is a medievalist specializing in political history. Her particular interests are lordship and power structures in the north of England.

Since 2010, Sarah's research roles have been focused on local and regional history. She has worked on several projects which have aimed to transfer academic research to a broader constituency in order to encourage public engagement with history and heritage.

 

My Role

Sarah works within the Regional Heritage Centre as Assistant Editor for the Victoria County History of Cumbria project. She is responsible for co-ordinating and supporting the work of volunteer researchers by providing guidance on the requirements of the VCH research and by developing and delivering a research skills training programme. Sarah also researches and writes for VCH Cumbria and maintains the project website: www.cumbriacountyhistory.org.uk/

 

 

Current Teaching

Sarah is the convenor for the third year special subject module HIST317: Richard III and the Princes in the Tower. Sarah has taught various courses on British and European medieval history at Lancaster and Manchester Metropolitan Universites.

Thesis Outline

Sarah's AHRC-funded PhD thesis examined the honour of Pontefract between 1086 and 1509, from the perspective of its lords and leading tenants. Based on the extent of continuity found in lateral and hierarchical ties within the honorial context, the thesis argued that the honour of Pontefract survived as a meaningful socio-political entity.
