History of smell and senses (WP5 lead)

Dr. William Tullett in an associate professor in History at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, and an expert on the history of smell and the senses. As the leader of WP5, Dr Tullett will be working on converting the data from historical texts and images obtained in other work-packages into storylines and narratives about Europe’s olfactory past. These storylines will inform the work of museums and heritage colleagues on the project. Dr Tullett will be in charge of developing the Encyclopaedia of European Olfactory Heritage – a new web-resource that will be the first of its kind – that will catalogue and describe the smells, odorous spaces, feelings about scent, and key noses of the European past.
