Dr Emily Bartlett
Lecturer in Modern British History
I am a cultural historian of health and the body with particular interests in charity, materiality and the everyday. I joined Queen Mary in 2020. Prior to this I worked as a Research Assistant at the Universities of Kent and Birkbeck, University of London, and as an Associate Lecturer at the University of Kent. I completed my PhD in history at the University of Kent in 2019. I am currently working on a monograph, provisionally titled, 'Objects of Pity: Material Culture, Charity, and Disabled Ex-Servicemen, c.1900-1930'.
‘Re-Assembling Disabled Identities: Employment, Ex-Servicemen and the Poppy Factory’, Journal of Social History, 53.4 (Autumn 2019).
