Rachel Delman is in the final year of her doctoral research in the History Faculty at The University of Oxford. Her AHRC-funded thesis takes an interdisciplinary approach to houses that were commissioned and/or headed by women in late medieval England. By paying close attention to the design, layout and use of elite female domestic space, Rachel’s work explores how female authority was constructed and expressed through the material and social environment of the late medieval great household.
Rachel holds a B.A. in English Studies and History from The University of Nottingham and an M.Phil in Medieval History from the University of Cambridge.
