Richard Bates

Research Fellow, History,

My research focuses on how ideas influence social change and in particular on the relationships between individual figures, social formations and political power. I have a particular interest in women in medicine. My work on Nightingale builds on my PhD, which took the form of a critical historical biography of French child psychoanalyst and doctor Fran├žoise Dolto (1908-88), completed in 2017.
