Claire Turner (University of Leeds), ‘ “No corruption may come in by the windows of your eyes”: Outbreaks of Plague and the Sense of Sight in Seventeenth-Century London’.
Claire Turner is a PhD student at Leeds studying how people experienced and perceived epidemic disease through their senses in seventeenth-century England. Her research explores interactions between the traditional five senses (sight, smell, sound, taste and touch) and assesses how sensory interplay affected the way that people experienced, perceived, and remembered the plague.
