MemberNatasha Bailey

I am a cultural and gender historian, whose work focuses primarily on indigenous Nahua women in central Mexico during the early colonial period (early C16-mid C17). In my doctoral research I look at the participation of Nahua women in producing and selling the alcoholic beverage pulque and how their domination of the trade offered opportunities to negotiate their social position within a colonial state. My doctoral project brings together scholarship from gender history, indigenous history and drinking studies, pursuing an innovative methodology that combines source materials in Spanish, Nahuatl and visual languages.

MemberJoan Tumblety

I am a historian of 20th-century France, with a special interest in cultural and gender history, and more recently in the history of health and medicine. I have published on such topics as the collaborationist press, 1940-1944, and its rehabilitation after the war; the obsessions of early to mid-twentieth-century physical culturists with masculinity, eugenics and national decline; and on aspects of the interwar radical right. I am currently working on a social and cultural history of natural health cures in early to mid 20th-century France, the cultural work of physicians, the presentation of science and medicine at the 1937 Paris world’s fair, and the emergence of self-help literature across the century.
