Hannah Barker (University of Manchester)

‘Tradesmen in Love’

Hannah Barker is Professor of British History at the University of Manchester. Her research focuses on the era of the industrial revolution in Britain and on the north of England in particular. Her recent research has concentrated on issues of gender and work in towns. She has published on the impact of industrialisation on women’s employment, and specifically the degree to which the advent of modern capitalism marginalised women workers. Her current research project examines the concept of ‘family strategy’ in terms of small family businesses.
