Merridee L. Bailey

Senior Research Fellow, ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, University of Adelaide

I am a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Adelaide with the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions. I co-convene the research cluster 'Space, Cities and Emotions' which focuses on the research of those whose work connects with the ideas of space, cities and identities. I specialise in the history of England and Europe in the later medieval and early modern periods. I hold a BA, an MA, and earned my PhD at the Australian National University. To date, most of my work has been on the history of book culture and issues of socialisation and morality in late medieval and early modern Europe. I have recently published Socialising the Child in Late Medieval England, c. 1400-1600 (York Medieval Press, 2012). In addition to lecturing in medieval history and historical methodology at the University of New England and the Australian National University, I have held visiting fellowships at the Centre for Metropolitan History (Institute of Historical Research, London), and an Australian Academy of the Humanities International Research Fellowship. My research has been funded by the Australian Research Council, the Australian Academy of the Humanities, the Scouloudi Foundation, the Richard III Society and the Bibliographical Society. I hold a Visiting Fellowship at Oriel College, Oxford, for the 2015-2016 academic year.
