Jonathan studied for an undergraduate degree in History at the University of York, during which he joined the England’s Immigrants project for his dissertation research on aliens and religion in his native county of Suffolk. His research focused on the religious impact of medieval immigration in liturgy, theology, heresy, art and architecture, and testamentary bequests in Suffolk.
Since graduating in July 2014, Jonathan has joined the project as Editorial Assistant and will provide administrative assistance, primarily with updating and editing the project’s website and developing a user-friendly guide to the project’s database. He will also be responsible for organising the major end of project conference in York in February 2015.
Alongside his job in the England’s Immigrants project, Jonathan is the Tenor Choral Scholar at York Minster and hopes to pursue a career as a professional singer.
