Women of Castle 

A study of the female social history of Durham Castle. The Castle plays host to the oldest college in Durham University's history (University College), which has been active since 1837, but has only welcomed women to study since 1987. 
My proposal was to embed myself within the community of Castle and uncover forgotten or hidden histories, find stories to tell and discover and champion the female individuals who have existed on the periphery of Castle's history, both in the past and in the present.

This research project was exhibited within the Castle itself on October 22nd 2021. Exhibited works included the Photographic Lightboxes, the First Ladies Flag and an Alternative Castle Tour, which can also be viewed below (subtitles coming soon.)
