Title of research topic

James Hogg, Scottish Romanticism and the Short Story


Dr Adrian Hunter

Dr Suzanne Gilbert


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.
