Grace Waye-Harris is a PhD Candidate in the department of history at the University of Adelaide. Her research examines the function of fashion in diplomacy during the reign of Henry VIII. This research aims to advance historical knowledge in the areas of Renaissance fashion, material diplomacy, and the Tudors.

My research seeks to demonstrate the extensive functions of dress within political and diplomatic action during the reign of Henry VIII. This research builds upon my 2018 Honours thesis for which I was awarded the Lynda Tapp Prize which recognises the best history Honours thesis. General areas of interest include, historical fashion and materiality, Medieval and Early Modern England, the Tudors, and Italian Renaissance art & culture.
