Dr Sara Wolfson

Dr Sara Wolfson is a Lecturer in Early Modern History at Canterbury Christ Church University (full profile page). Prior to this she lectured in Early Modern British and European history at Manchester Metropolitan University. She completed her AHRC funded PhD at Durham University in 2010 on the female court and household of Queen Henrietta Maria. She is currently reworking her thesis for publication as a monograph, focusing on the political, social and religious roles that Caroline court women played in the period 1625-1669. She has recently published a chapter on the politics of Henrietta Maria’s female Bedchamber in Nadine Akkerman and Birgit Houben (eds.), The Politics of Female Households: Ladies-in-Waiting across Early Modern Europe (Leiden: Brill, 2013). Sara's research also focuses on transnational relations between the Dutch Republic and the Stuart crown in 1641-3. This will form part of a wider project that explores the transnational nature of royalism.
