HHB welcomes Corinne Boter - third-year PhD-student at Wageningen University and Research Centre, the Netherlands - among the HHB Researchers.
Corinne studied socio-economic history in Amsterdam, where she specialized in Dutch, early modern history. Together with two other researchers, she is currently working on the project ‘Industriousness in an imperial economy. Interactions of households’ work patterns, time allocation and consumption in the Netherlands and the Netherlands-Indies, 1815-1940’. Her individual research concerns the transition to a male breadwinner society in the Netherlands during the nineteenth century. She is especially interested in changes in household labour allocation with a specific focus on women’s work.
