About me

After completing both undergraduate and postgraduate studies at the University of Edinburgh, I taught in the History Department there (1994-6) before joining the University of Stirling in 1996, where I teach eighteenth-century British political history (parliamentary and popular) and the history of gender in Britain (c.1750-1930). I am currently studying the state trials for sedition and treason in the 1790s in Scotland, England, Ireland, Canada and America, from the perspective of the state in the age of Enlightenment; and co-editing the fabulous correspondence (1750-1810) between the Ayrshire Church of Scotland minister, James Wodrow, and the Midlands banker, Samuel Kenrick, held at the Dr Williams Library in London.
