Editor: Dr Dustin Neighbours

Dustin is a postdoctoral researcher for the Fashion History Lab project at Aalto University, and Project Coordinator for an EU Horizon funded consortium project with the Faculty of Educational Sciences at the University of Helsinki. As a historian of northern European and British cultural history utilising digital research tools, Dustin specialises in the history of monarchy and court culture, with an emphasis on the performativity of gender, material culture and dress history, cultural practices (i.e. hunting), and crafting spectacles within the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

He is currently working on two interconnected projects. For the first project, which was awarded a Janet Arnold Grant from the Society of Antiquaries, Dustin is comparatively examining the material culture, dress, and textiles of early modern hunting to better understand the lives of royal and noble figures between the 16th and 18th centuries, including August and Electress Anna of Saxony in Dresden and Queen Christina of Sweden. Second, Dustin is cultivating a larger project on the cultural heritage, politics and practices of early modern hunting, particularly women’s engagement with hunting, and its environmental elements in northern Europe. For this project, he has a collaboration with a UNESCO site, the par force hunting landscape in Denmark

He is the chair of the Society for Court Studies European Branch, and a committee member for the Centre for Privacy Studies at the University of Copenhagen.
