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 am co-editor of The New Biographical Dictionary of Scottish Women (2018) which includes entries on over 1000 women from the medieval period to the twenty-first century. I maintain a website WISH (Women in Scottish History) that hosts resources for the study of Scottish women. http://www.womeninscottishhistory.org

I teach in the Centre of Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, where there is a graduate program specializing in Scottish history. I also have interests in modern Scottish politics and culture.
