Professor Katrina Honeyman had been Professor of Social and Economic History in the School of History since 2008. Originally appointed to the University in 1979, Professor Honeyman enjoyed an international reputation for her publications on gender history, the history of local and regional industries (notably the textile trades) and the history of child labour. Sadly, ill-health had compelled her early retirement in July 2011.Posted in: Obituaries
