  • About

    Professor Rose specializes in the study of women and gender in nineteenth and twentieth-century Britain, and has recently turned her attention to the impact of empire and decolonization on British metropolitan life.  Her publications deal with the intersections of gender and class in the development of industrial capitalism, and she has published both theoretical and historiographical essays on the subjects of gender, class formation and citizenship.  She has also published on nineteenth-century family and household strategies, and on national identity and citizenship in World War II Britain.
