|Please briefly describe your parish interests and any past and present parish-related projects||
I am one of the My-Parish team, and am responsible for updating our membership records.
My research interests lie with parishes in moments of crisis and change. I completed a Master's thesis on 'natural disasters' in early modern England, and later a PhD on flooding in early modern England. My research to date has focused on the Severnside parishes of south-west England, and parishes on the Lincolnshire coast from 1500-1800.
I am also interested in connecting local and parish history groups – hence my involvement with My-Parish!
|What resources or experiences were most influential in shaping your parish interests?||
Visiting parish churches is always inspiring. Attendance at the 2012 Warwick Symposium on Parish Research was also very encouraging.
