Professor Jane Whittle


My first degree was a BA in History at the University of Manchester awarded with first class honours in 1991. I did a DPhil at Oxford University on the topic of "The Development of Agrarian Capitalism in England, c.1450-1580" which was completed in 1995. I was appointed as a lecturer in economic and social history at the University of Exeter immediately afterwards in 1995, promoted to senior lecturer in 2002, to associate professor in 2008, and to a full professorship in 2012. I was chair of the British Agricultural History Society from 2012-2015.
