Nevin Rosenberg studied History & French at the University of Oxford before completing her GDL and LPC at BPP University Law School. She is now an associate solicitor in family law at Kingsley Napley, where she advises on all aspects of family law and relationship breakdown including divorce, financial settlement, non-molestation and occupation orders and pre and post nuptial agreements. She also works with clients to resolve practical and financial arrangements for children, whether in court proceedings or otherwise, and has experience of international relocation cases.

Dr Harriet Soper is the Simon and June Li Fellow in English Literature at Lincoln College, where she is a specialist in Old English literature, pursuing research strongly inflected by literary and cultural theory of various stripes, but especially ecological and new materialist. She is particularly interested in the ways that humans are drawn into intimacy with their environments in their experience of time and her forthcoming monograph, The Life Course in Old English Poetry, explores depictions of human ageing in Old English verse. Dr Soper also recently co-edited Early Medieval English Life Courses: Cultural-Historical Perspectives, which brings together studies of age vocabulary, medicine, name-giving practices, theology, poetry, and material culture.

Following a BA in History from the University of Warwick, Zara Christmas has had a distinguished professional career in both private and non-profit industries, including at the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. She has since completed an MA in History and Philosophy of Science and Technology from University College London and is now at Lincoln College studying for a DPhil in History. Her doctoral thesis ‘Children having children?’ explores the gap between ‘child’ and ‘adult’ as the first history of teenage pregnancy and motherhood in late 20th and early 21st century England.

This panel will be chaired by Marlene Schilling, a DPhil candidate in Medieval German.
