Eleanor has an MA in History from the University of Manchester where she developed an interest in cultural and urban history, exploring the interaction between people and spaces. Her dissertation considered the effect of Irish immigration to Manchester in the 1840s and saw the application of micro research to areas such as Angel Meadow and Little Ireland.
