Veronica Isaac


I am a material cultural historian who specialises in nineteenth and early twentieth century dress and theatre costume. I adopt an object centred, interdisciplinary, approach to research and this methodology has been influenced by the decade I have spent working in the Heritage Sector, together with my academic training (which includes a joint honours BA in English Literature and History and an MA in Museum and Gallery Studies: Specialising in the History of Textiles and Dress).

My PhD thesis ‘Dressing the Part’ Ellen Terry (1847-1928): Towards a Methodology for Analysing Historic Theatre Costume, (2016) was carried out in collaboration with the Department of Theatre and Performance, Victoria & Albert Museum and Smallhythe Place, National Trust.
