“Finding Women in Sloane Lab Knowledge Base” with Dr Rosalind White

Tucked away in the margins of Sloane’s catalogues lie the untold stories of many individuals whose contributions to science have largely remained in the shadows. Dr Rosalind White’s project, In the Margins of Early Modern Science: Pioneering Women in Sloane’s ‘Paper Museum’, will highlight the under-recognised contributions of female artists within these collections.

About the speaker: Dr Rosalind White is a cultural historian who specialises in uncovering ‘lost’ stories through object-led archival research. Her PhD explored natural history’s influence on Victorian literature and culture, emphasising the overlooked contributions of women, children, and working-class naturalists.  As a Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham on the ‘CLiC Dickens’ project, she conducts corpus linguistics research to advance scholarly understanding, enrich pedagogical methods, and foster creative exploration of the long nineteenth century.


“Bringing Sloane into Conversation with Blackness” with Hannah Cusworth

During her community fellowship, Hannah Cusworth was guided by Black Studies thinkers at critical junctures. Their work transformed how she conceived of the project, the research she undertook and how she tried to live during those three months. During this presentation, Hannah will share her process, experience and tentative conclusions.

About the speaker: Hannah Cusworth is a PhD researcher with English Heritage and former Head of History. She began teaching in 2012 and taught in a number of London academies. As Head of History, Hannah led the creation of a curriculum that embraced migration stories and the history of empire and race.
