Elizabeth Howard

Elizabeth Howard is a Ph.D student at Cardiff University, supervised by Garthine Walker. Her Ph.D explores litigation involving Welsh women at the Court of the Great Sessions of Wales in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, with additional material drawn from Welsh diocesan records and the Westminster Court of Star Chamber, contributing to the Welsh perspective. She will examine women's engagement with the courts in various contexts -criminal, civil, ecclesiastical - as perpetrators, victims, prosecutors, and witnesses.
