Alexandra Jones completed her PhD "Disability in Coalfields Literature 1880 -1948: A Comparative Study" at Swansea University on a three-year studentship to the five-year Wellcome Trust project Disability and Industrial Society: A Comparative Cultural History of British Coalfields, 1780-1948 (www.dis-ind-soc.org.uk). Led by Swansea, and working in collaboration with the Universities of Aberystwyth, Northumbria, Glasgow Caledonian and Strathclyde, the project has been one of the largest disability history projects undertaken in the UK.
