Bankruptcy in the Court of Chancery, 1674-1750
Supervisor: Dr Natasha Glaisyer
I am a interested in all aspects of the credit-based economy across the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. My research is funded by the White Rose College of the Arts and Humanities (WRoCAH) and explores bankruptcy proceedings at different stages of the legal process within the Court of Chancery. While my project is grounded in economic history, this methodological approach illuminates the social and cultural aspects of financial failure during this period.
