Junior fellows



The IHR’s 21 Junior Fellows are specialists in British and world history, early medieval to modern. Current research projects range from early modern English workhouses to girlhood in colonial Africa, medieval papal privilege to the Bengal silk trade. Junior Fellowships enable holders to complete doctorates or undertake post-doctoral research, with fellowships available for between 6 months and 3 years.
