I am currently revising my manuscript tentatively entitled Women, Marriage, and Rank in the British Aristocracy, 1485-2000 which has been accepted for publication by Palgrave for inclusion in their Modern Europe monograph series. This project combines a statistical analysis with a more traditional analysis of primary sources such as letters, journals, and diaries. For the study, I undertook a statistical analysis of the marriage patterns of 6,289 women. Additionally, I examined the diaries, memoirs, and letters of approximately 150 aristocratic women. Together, the statistical and the written evidence provide a window into the intersection of marriage and rank among elite British women between the sixteenth and the twentieth centuries. As a result of this research, my manuscript argues that there was a remarkable level of consistency in rank identity among the British aristocracy despite great changes in government, religion, and society.
In addition I am currently doing the research for two additional book projects, The Howard Affinity at the Early Tudor Court: The Second and Third Dukes of Norfolk
During the Reigns of Henry VII and Henry VIII and Becoming a Proper Lady: Self-Fashioning and Rank Identity Among Aristocratic British Women, 1485-2000.
