Dr Julie Gammon is a Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Southampton.
I studied at the University of Essex under the supervision of Professor Anthony Fletcher and my research was on the construction of narratives of sexual violence in England from the 17th to early 19th centuries. It used both legal records and petitions for charity to examine how stories of rape were shaped and were changing over time. I also held Lecturing posts at the University of Essex and the University of Warwick before moving to Southampton. My interest in stories of sexual violence has developed into broader research on uncovering histories of groups that are largely absent from the historical record: including, gay and lesbian history, the history of childhood and gypsies/travellers.
