Clare Midgley

Professor Clare Midgley

Research Professor in History


I came to Sheffield Hallam in 2006 as Research Professor in History. My first career was in Archaeology but I then switched to nineteenth-century British social history, gaining a PhD in History in 1989. My key research focus is on British women’s history as it intersects with the history of the British Empire, and my publications include Women Against Slavery, Gender and Imperialism and Feminism and Empire. I am a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and from 2010 to 2015 was President of the International Federation for Research in Women’s History.
