Catrin Fflur Huws
Welsh Crucible 2015
Catrin Fflur Huws is a Senior Lecturer in Law at Aberystwyth University, having also graduated and obtained her doctorate from the same institution. She is currently the Chairperson of the Centre for Welsh Legal Affairs, specialising in bilingual law-making, Wales as an emerging jurisdiction and the legal status of the Welsh Language. Catrin’s research therefore combines law and linguistics. Catrin is also a playwright, and her play To Kill a Machine is currently on a national tour, and will be going to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The play focuses on the life and work of Alan Turing, and has also led to research on the law as a Turing-complete machine. Catrin also uses theatrical techniques as a way of conducting research and organised a workshop in 2014 as part of the AHRC’s Being Human Festival on verbatim theatre and tribunals.
