Rosemary Mitchell is Professor of Victorian Studies and took her BA Hons. and D.Phil. at Lincoln College, Oxford, before becoming a Research and Associate Editor at The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.  There she worked on the nineteenth century and art and architecture sections, and she has written more than 150 articles for the project; she still continues to write for the dictionary, her most recent entry being the life of Mary Ann Stodart, an early Victorian Evangelical advice book writer. She is an interdisciplinary cultural historian.

Professor Mitchell joined the academic staff of Leeds Trinity in 1999.  She is also Associate Editor of the Journal of Victorian Culture and Deputy Director of the Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies, and sits on the management committee for the British Association of Victorian Studies.  She is the author of Picturing the Past: English History in Text and Image, 1830-1870 (2000), and has published articles in Women's History ReviewNineteenth-Century ContextsClio, and the Journal of Victorian Culture

Her research specialism is in Victorian historical culture, with particular reference to gender. Her teaching commitments range from big turning points in British history such as the Black Death and the Norman Conquest, to Victorian architecture and the modern heritage industry.  Because of her research interests, she particularly enjoys teaching courses on the use of history in the Victorian and contemporary periods, and gender and cultural topics.
