Dr Rachel Rich
Rachel has published in the history of food and eating, including a Manchester University Press monograph Bourgeois Consumption: Food, Space and Identity in London and Paris, 1850-1914 (2011). Recently, she has turned her attention to the history of timekeeping practices in modern Europe, looking at clock ownership, women’s diaries, and cookbooks for what they can tell us about how people thought about and organized their time. Her most recent publication in this area appeared in Cultural and Social History in 2015.
