'Litigating Women: Negotiating Justice in Courts of Law, c. 1100-c.1750'

(June 28 & 29): a symposium

As part of our AHRC-funded, collaborative project 'Women Negotiating the Boundaries of Justice: Britain and Ireland, c. 1100-c.1750', and in conjunction with Swansea University's 11th annual 'Symposium by the Sea', this two-day event will explore women's access to justice and use of the lawcourts in Britain and Continental Europe in the medieval and early modern periods.

With speakers ranging from senior academics to postgraduate students, we have dedicated 'new researcher' sessions for postgraduates, three keynotes, and a host of fascinating topics that cover, among other things, noblewomen's civil litigation in medieval England, Ireland and Normandy, German and French divorce suits in the Revolutionary period, and women's appeals to the Court of Sequestrations during the English Civil War
