I completed my MLitt in History at the University of Glasgow in 2014, after having completed my MA (Hons) in History, also at Glasgow, in 2011. My MLitt dissertation title was:
‘On thee the poet’s pen shall dwell’: history from below and popular politics in the Gardyne Collection of Scottish Poetry, 1815-1838.
My overall objective was to establish trends with regards to political ideology as discussed in Scottish poetry between 1815-1838.
Since then, I have completed a PGDE in Secondary History at the University of Strathclyde, and I am registered with the General Teaching Council for Scotland.
