About me

About me

I was born and raised in Edinburgh. In June 2023 I completed my PhD in English at the University of Strathclyde, but my first degrees were in History at the Universities of Edinburgh and Oxford. My research interests lie primarily in Scottish literature in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, specifically, literature published in Scottish magazines and periodicals. A consistent concern for me is national identity: what does Scottish literature published in Scottish magazines say about Scotland? I am also interested in other aspects of magazine and periodical studies, such as manuscript magazines, football fanzines, and working-class print culture.

Similarly, I have experience in researching late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century working-class writers and poets, and in recovering Scottish women writers who were active between c.1880 and c.1950. I co-guest-edited a special volume of Scottish Literary Review on this topic in 2022. I have also published in the Victorian Periodicals Review. My research on Scottish women’s magazines has been featured on BBC Scotland News and BBC Radio Scotland, and I have also written on late-twentieth-century feminist magazines in Scotland in conjunction with the Scottish Magazines Network.

I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and an associate member of the Scottish Centre for Victorian and Neo-Victorian Studies.


I am broadly interested in Scottish literature and history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with particular interests in magazine and periodical studies, gender, and class.
