Research interests

A first-generation academic from a working-class background, I am a social historian of England in the period c.1500-1750, with a particular interest in the relationship between historical change and the everyday lives of ordinary men and women. My main research interests include:

  • the history of drinking
  • the history of work (especially the gender division of labour and work-based identities)
  • the histories of time-telling and time-use
  • the history of literacies
  • the history of the South West
  • approaches to the study of 'popular culture' and 'history from below'

My first book, Alehouses and Good Fellowship in Early Modern England, was published in 2014. For more information on my other publications see the 'Research Outputs' section of these pages.

I am currently working with Professor Jane Whittle on the outputs of a Leverhulme Trust funded project on 'Women's Work in Rural England, 1500-1700', which investigated women's work activities using incidental evidence from church court depositions, quarter sessions examinations and coroners' rolls from the South West of England. For more information visit our project website.

I am a contributor to the collaborative early modern history blog the many-headed monster; I tweet in a professional capacity as @mark_hailwood; and I am a co-ordinator of the international and interdisciplinary Drinking Studies Network.
