Speaking about her Fellowship, Rachel said: “I’m delighted that the Royal Historical Society have recognised my work with this honour. The Fellowship is in recognition of my contribution to historical scholarship, through my research looking at fatherhood in the late medieval period.”
Rachel’s recent work within the book, Fatherhood and its Representations in Middle English Texts, was described by the journal Arthuriana as a ‘superbly thought-through book’. This ground-breaking interdisciplinary academic study focused on the literary and cultural constructions of fatherhood in the late medieval period.
