Postan Fellow, 2023/24University of Exeter

Grace Owen is a medieval historian, with a particular interest in the peasantry and manorial officials in fourteenth century England. Grace completed her PhD, which was titled A Comparative Study of Rural and Urban Manorial Officialdom in the Later Medieval England, at the University of Birmingham in 2021, with funding from the Midlands4Cities doctoral training partnership. Most recently, she has been working as a Research Fellow at the university of Exeter for the FORMSofLABOUR project, investigating the presence and nature of women’s work in manorial records in later medieval England. As the Economic History Society’s Postan Fellow, Grace will develop her thesis into a monograph that explores the structure, remuneration, and activities of peasant officers across medieval England.
