Stephanie Van Dam

I am a PhD student at the Faculty of History at the University of Cambridge, funded by the ESRC DTP & Cambridge Trust. My project considers how labour protests in the British Empire in the 1930s and 1940s changed the way labour policies were formulated and implemented. I am specifically interested how protests changed injury compensation policies and am tying this to the wider question of how workers navigated injury and disability in imperial spaces. Before starting the PhD I was part of several research projects on empire, labour, slavery and migration (listed on my LinkedIn). For updates on disability history, hiking & archives follow me on Twitter.
