Dr. Kate Lister is a Postdoctoral Research Associate whose Twitter bio proclaims her to be a Neo-Medievalist, a Victorianist, and a "Whorestorian at the University of Perversity." The last notch in Lister's bio is evidenced in her curation of the Twitter account Whores of Yore, where she shares historical images and facts about sex workers and pornography. The Daily Dot reports Whores of Yore grew from Lister's ever-increasing collection of fascinating tidbits, which she felt the world needed to see.
"A catalogue of jilts, cracks, prostitutes, night-walkers, whores, she-friends, kind women, and others of the linnen-lifting tribe," reads the account's Twitter bio.
