My paper concentrates on second-hand clothes markets in Dublin city between 1870s-1920s, and the role played by evolving views on contagion and public health on the regulation of these clothes markets.

The title of this funded project is 'Exploring the survival strategies of working-class women in Dublin's tenements in a Public History environment (Tenement Museum Dublin, No. 14 Henrietta Street)'. The project is based between the School of History at University College Dublin (where my mentor is Professor Catherine Cox) and the Tenement Museum Dublin (where I will be working with my enterprise partner, Dublin City Council Heritage Officer Charles Duggan). The aim of the two-year project is to conduct scholarly research into the history of women's lives in the Dublin tenements, which will feed into a number of Public History outputs via the Tenement Museum. Project outputs will include scholarly publications, as well as initiatives which will engage directly with members of the public.
