I have recently found out that I have been awarded the Costume Society Bursary to attend the Making of a Monarchy for the Modern World conference in London in June, and also that I am the 2012 recipient of the K G Ponting Bursary from the Fashion Museum in Bath.

Both of these pieces of funding will contribute to the research I am currently undertaking for my thesis entitled 'Dressing the Beau Monde: Fashion, Intimacy and Business in the Eighteenth Century'. I'm giving papers on this research at the White Rose Eighteenth Century Conference at Leeds in May, and at my own conference, Desiring Fashion, at York in June.
