Research Interests:
I am currently involved in PhD research on women's influence on Poor Law administration in England. I am particularly interested in case studies and/or links to possible case studies of lesser known individuals. In addition I am interested in archival evidence - minute books etc., from Poor Law Boards and the growing influence of women visitors to workhouses.
