About Me

I am a historian of medieval and early modern Scotland who focuses on women, gender, and crime in Scottish towns, with interests also in medieval Scots literature. I have been a co-editor of The Biographical Dictionary of Scottish Women which includes entries on women from the medieval period to the twenty- first century. I teach in the Centre of Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. I also have interests in modern Scottish politics and culture.
