This talk offers a different account of urban reform in Edwardian Edinburgh. It explores the many women – doctors, mothers, nurses, kindergartners, philanthropists – who worked together to change the living conditions of the communities in the city’s Old Town.
Elizabeth's research focuses on gender and reform, inter-war English architectural modernism, social housing and very often the intersections among them all. Her publications include Women and the Making of Built Space in England 1870-1950 (Ashgate, 2007) and Suffragette City: Gender, Politics and the Built Environment (Routledge 2019).
