I am currently researching the history of personal appearance in early modern England, under the supervision of Dr. Jeffrey Collins. I am interested in uncovering how the then-contentious topics of fashion, cosmetics, and the wearing of hair influenced, and were influenced by, the political upheavals of the first half of the seventeenth-century. In doing so, I would like to demonstrate how these modes of fashion came to be viewed, and leveraged, as an explicitly political issue.
