Academic Profile: Dr Sally Frampton
Postdoctoral Research Assistant
Following my undergraduate degree in Politics and Sociology at the University of Bristol, I worked in the library and archives sector in London for a number of years. Following this I completed an MA and PhD in the history of medicine at University College London. My PhD thesis looked at the controversial introduction of ovarian surgery into medical practice in the nineteenth century. I am currently turning this research into a monograph.
I came to Oxford in March 2014 as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant on the AHRC funded project Constructing Scientific Communities: Citizen Science in the 19th and 21st Centuries, headed by Professor Sally Shuttleworth. My research looks at the rich variety of ways non-professional persons contributed to medical knowledge and debate during the nineteenth century.
