Emily Bartlett is a CHASE AHRC funded Doctoral candidate at the University of Kent. She completed both her Bachelors and Masters degrees at Kent and is now an assistant lecturer at the University. Her doctoral research examines the charitable care of disabled ex-servicemen in interwar Britain, with a particular focus on charitable material culture. Her broader research interests include the history of medicine and disability, the cultural histories of smoking, leisure, and entertainment, and the historical interpretation of everyday material objects. Emily is currently involved in a number of CHASE AHRC funded projects, including the foundation of an Open Access, student-led postgraduate journal, of which she is joint-founding editor. Outside of academic life, Emily enjoys watching melodramatic American medical dramas and reading transgressive fiction.
