      Katie Barclay | The University of Adelaide Node Leader


      Katie Barclay is Deputy Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence in the History of Emotions and Associate Professor in History at the University of Adelaide. After working in a number of UK institutions, she came to the CHE in 2011 as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work with David Lemmings and Claire Walker at The University of Adelaide on how the eighteenth-century press formed an ‘emotional public opinion’ around high-profile trials that focused on disruption in the family. Her subsequent DECRA research looked at intimate relationships amongst lower-order Scots between 1660 and 1830, exploring the ways that collective emotion shape individual emotional practices and the implications for the nature of Scottish communities. Currently she is working on an ARC Discovery Project ‘Precarious Accounts: Money, Sex and Power in the Industrial Revolution’, which explores how account books as emotional practices. More broadly, she is interested in gender, the family, and the making of the self. She is co-editor of the journal Emotions: History, Culture, Society.
