- About Me
I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph where I teach courses on early modern history, the British Isles, and Scotland’s witch-hunts. I am also editor for the International Review of Scottish Studies, co-editor of the fifth volume of the Guelph Series of Scottish Studies, and am currently co-editing the sixth and final volume of the series.
My research focuses on Scotland’s witch-hunting period in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In particular, I am interested in the intersection of speech and gender in judicial definitions of witchcraft.
