Personal profile

Research Interests

My thesis is entitled 'Protestant middle-class sibling relationships in Ulster, 1850-1900'. Using a range of family papers and private correspondence, my research is an intimate exploration of sibling bonds and relationships in ten middle-class Protestant families from the north of Ireland. It considers how family obligations and loyalties, specifically between brothers and sisters, affected middle-class families and their position within wider Irish middle-class society.
