Helen's MRes in Early Modern Studies focused on maternity in Shakespearean Comedy and she published an article on maternity and absence in Shakespearean Romance in 2016.
She is enjoying learning new approaches to her object-oriented PhD and seeing intersections with the skills she developed in my previous work.
Helen's collaborative project is supported by the National Productivity Investment Fund award, which, along with Birmingham City University’s STEAMhouse facility and M4C support, aims to allow her to engage industry with research and will provide the opportunity to develop products as part of the project. This will take the form of a range of souvenirs for sale in the SBT’s gift shops that are inspired by the International Collection.
This is a Midlands4Cities-funded, collaborative PhD with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
