My PhD thesis at the University of Strathclyde is provisionally titled “‘Objectionable, mean and demeaning’: A History of Vasectomy in Britain, c.1920-2000″, and explores eugenics, contraception, and masculinity throughout the twentieth century. For my research, I used archival sources and oral history interviews.
