I’m Hannah – by day, a researcher working in impact and evaluation in the charity sector. By night, collector of crafty hobbies and all-round enthusiast.

In my previous life I was a lecturer and academic, specialising in the accent and dialect of Stoke-on-Trent and its pottery industry. I loved my work, but the academic job market and culture was rough and not worth the toll it took.

This website acts as an archive for my academic work, personal bio and blog, and craft-based side projects – please use the navigation links at the side of the page to explore.

If you would like to get in touch, please feel free to email me on hannahmleach [at] gmail [dot] come, or find me on twitter @hm_leach.
