Amy Saunders is currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Winchester, exploring gender, sexuality and representation in heritage. Her research currently focuses on Stuart royal couples, examining how James VI & I and Anna of Denmark, Charles I and Henrietta Maria, and Charles II and Catherine of Braganza are represented and remembered. Amy has presented at several international Kings and Queens conferences, given public talks and tours in museums, and recorded a podcast for Winchester Heritage Open Days. She has also published an article, “The Afterlife of Christina of Sweden: Gender and Sexuality in Heritage and Fiction” and is a member of the HistoryIndoors team who have been sharing history content throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Away from history Amy loves traveling, reading fantasy books, baking, playing board games, and cuddling her cats.
