Susan is a medieval historian, interested in the complexity of peasants’ relationships with local landscape, ranging from their economic interests through to more culturally informed ideas, including conceptual notions of the landscape adopted by different community groups, the survival of cultural memory, and the landscape as a repository for local cultural capital. She is currently writing a monograph which explores these themes, due out in 2020. She currently works as a Research Fellow in the Institute for Name-Studies at the University of Nottingham.
