Dr Sally Tuckett

  • Lecturer (History of Art)

Research interests

  • Eighteenth and nineteenth century dress and textile history, particularly in Scotland
  • Cloth, clothing and social control

Biography

Having studied History at undergraduate level at the University of Edinburgh, Sally then completed an MSc in Scottish Studies which introduced her to the study of material culture and consumption in Scottish society. Building on this interest and staying at the University of Edinburgh, her PhD investigated how the clothing and textiles of eighteenth-century Scots can be interpreted as symbols of wider cultural, social and economic practices.

Research Projects

Sally is currently working on examining the relationships between textiles, dress and social control in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as a means of further understanding marginal social groups.

Sally was the researcher on ‘Artisans and the Craft Economy in Scotland’, a Leverhulme funded project led by Prof. Stana Nenadic at the University of Edinburgh, from 2013-2014, focusing on the Ayrshire whitework industry and Scottish handloom weavers. Prior to this, she was the researcher on ‘Colouring the Nation’, a two-year collaborative project between the University of Edinburgh and National Museums Scotland, funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Led by Stana Nenadic, this project investigated the Scottish Turkey red dyed and printed cotton industry of the nineteenth century.
