Research interests

Hannah Martin is a third year PhD candidate in Historical Geography at Northumbria University in Newcastle. She has a BA in History from Northumbria University and a MA in Modern History from Durham University. Her thesis focuses on the intersection of race, class and politics in the North East of England 1919-1939. Hannah’s thesis aims to develop a radical and inclusive historical geography of the working class in the North East and is particularly attentive to the everyday experience of BAME British colonial seafarers. Her thesis aims to bring attention to everyday experiences of marginalisation, othering and exclusion and situate them alongside the development of agency from within BAME communities.


Hannah’s wider research interests lie within everyday histories and geographies of working-class identity formation and cultural development in nineteenth and early twentieth-century Britain, with particular focus on the 19th century coal mining communities of the Great Northern Coalfield. Based on research undertaken in her masters degree, her current working paper aims to uncover the dialogue between labour control and worker agency and extend analysis beyond the worker, the workplace and the working day in order to demonstrate the fluidity of the working class experience of control and the development of community agency and solidarity.
