I am a phd student at Birkbeck researching the social and cultural history of idiocy in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
I am fascinated by (and with) the history of medicine, psychiatry, learning disability, mental deficiency, asylums, institutions, space, geography, emotions, and the long nineteenth century!
