Career Summary


Michele Seah is an early career historian whose research focuses on late-medieval/early-modern history, specifically British royal studies. Her PhD thesis examined the economic and financial resources of the late-medieval and early-modern queens consort in England. It analysed their scale and extent in order to understand how they underpinned the establishment and maintenance of queenly households and affinities, and contributed to the economic significance of medieval/early-modern queens.

Her publications include a co-authored chapter in the edited collection, Women and Economic Power in Premodern Royal Courts (ARC Humanities Press, 2020) and an article in the 2020 special issue of Parergon: Journal of ANZAMEMS on "Representations of Medieval and Early Modern Queens". She has also contributed to the periodical BBC History Revealed, based in the UK.
