In Their Own Write is a three-year, AHRC-funded project, running from 2018 to 2021. The project uses letters from paupers and other poor people, and associated manuscript material such as petitions, sworn statements and advocate letters (those written on behalf of paupers) to investigate the lives of the poor between 1834 and 1900.
