Jodie researches nineteenth-century representations and experiences of people who travelled around Britain (including Romanies/Gypsies and canal boat people), and the cultural significance of Britain's industrial waterways. In 2016 she was appointed the Canal & River Trust’s first Honorary Research Fellow. You can watch a YouTube video about Jodie’s research on canal boat people. She strongly believes in communicating academic research to wide audiences, and works with charities, museums and heritage organisations, schools and others.
