Rags to Riches?: Experiences of Social Mobility since 1800
This network was funded from Jun 2013 - Dec 2015.
This interdisciplinary research group explored the history and experience of social mobility in nineteenth and twentieth century Britain and Europe. The network aimed to foster the development of new perspectives on social mobility by adopting a qualitative and family biographical approach. We sought in particular to uncover the previously neglected areas of female social mobility and the impact of family members on an individual’s life chances. Our comparative approach promoted the setting of individual findings within a broader geographical and temporal context.
