Dr Zoe Dyndor
My role on the project is to assist Dr Sarah Tarlow in strand three of the project, ‘placing the criminal corpse’, which investigates the processes of hanging murderers in chains and the burial of executed bodies. Prior to this I worked as a Sessional Lecturer at the University of Worcester, teaching modules including ‘Crime and Punishment 1750-1900’ and ‘Religion and Society in Early Modern England’. I completed my PhD at the University of Northampton in 2010, my thesis exploring ‘The Political Culture of Election in Northampton, 1768-1868’. My publications include ‘Death recorded: Capital punishment and the press in Northampton, 1780-1834’, Midland History Journal (October 2008) and ‘Witnesses, wives and widows: women and their involvement in the 1768 Northampton borough election’, Parliamentary History (October 2011).
