Professor Sarah Toulalan


I was appointed to the post of Lecturer in Medical History at the end of May 2005, having previously worked at Exeter as a temporary lecturer since 2002.  I was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2010.

I gained my Ph.D in 2002 from the University of London (Royal Holloway) with a thesis entitled Writing the erotic: pornography in seventeenth century England published as Imagining Sex: pornography and bodies in seventeenth-century England by Oxford University Press in 2007. I also completed my M.A. at Royal Holloway, University of London, in 1995, having returned to academic study after spending ten years working as a civil servant at H.M. Treasury in London. My undergraduate study was at the University of Southampton.
