Overview of research:

My research entitled ‘The Effects of Parental Marital Status and Family Form on Experiences of Childhood in Twentieth Century Scotland’ examines the effects that family form and parental marital status may have had on experiences of childhood in Scotland between 1920 – 1970 and forms part of the AHRC funded project ‘A History Working Class Marriage, 1855-1976’. Utilising oral history to interview those brought up in differing family forms in Scotland, my research contrasts experiences of childhood and seeks to explore whether experiences of childhood varied dramatically depending on family form or whether other, external factors were more influential.
