Dr Emily Vine
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
I am a social and religious historian of early modern and long eighteenth century Britain. I joined Exeter in November 2023 as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the Leverhulme Project 'The Material Culture of Wills, England 1540-1790’.
My publications to date have focused on religious life in London, on bodily experience, on letter-writing, and on experiences of the life cycle. My forthcoming monograph, based on my doctoral research, focuses on domestic religion and the life cycle in early modern London.
Prior to joining Exeter, I was a Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham and before that, at the University of Leeds. I studied for my PhD in History at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), and held the 2018/19 Thornley Junior Fellowship at the Institute of Historical Research. During my time in London I taught at QMUL and King's College London, and I also spent a few months as a historical researcher for the BBC children’s TV show 'Horrible Histories'. I studied for my undergraduate and master’s degrees here in the wonderful History department at Exeter.
