Dr Jill Liddington
I worked in the School of Continuing Education (originally the Extra-Mural Department) 1982-2005, where I became Reader in Gender History. Since 2006, I have been based in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Gender Studies (CIGS).
I have published both on the Votes for Women campaigns, and also on the four-million-word diaries of Anne Lister of Shibden Hall (1791-1840). Anne Lister in the 1830s is the subject of a BBC1 drama series inspired by Nature's Domain and Presenting the Past.
My key publications include:
