Project Research Themes

I will be exploring in particular a number of themes:

  • Methodologies: the application of digital humanities, corpus linguistics, 'big data', etc, methods to early modern administrative archival records
  • The uses and language of petitions
  • Women in petitions/as petitioners
  • Bastardy and marriage
