Description of PhD

SPICE: Scientific Personae in Cultural Encounters

Project SPICE is an international project that researches the concept of 'scientific persona'. In my PhD Dancing in the Kitchens of History. Eileen Power (1889-1940) I use this concept in the context of a biography. Power was one of the first professional female historians in Britain who achieved recogniton in the form of a professorship at the London School of Economics. She was one of just a handful of women historians who achieved this status in Britain before WWII. Using the concept of personae, I adress the question how - at a time when women were firlmy marginalized within academia - Eileen Power was able to achieve the level of success that she did.
