Lesley Hulonce

‘Workhouse Tales’ is a series of funny, touching, sad and riotous vignettes based on workhouse and poor law life and lives in 19th and 20th century Britain.

I am a historian and lecturer at Swansea University and my research interests include histories of disability, gender and sexualities, especially 19th and 20th-century prostitution, and also philanthropy, protest and popular culture.

My PhD thesis, which was submitted 30 May 2013 is titled:
‘Imposed and imagined childhoods: the making of the poor law child, Swansea 1834-1910.
