My research examines Scottish connections with slavery and the black Atlantic. This work began with my monograph, Scotland and the Caribbean, c. 1740-1833: Atlantic Archipelagos (Routledge, 2015). This analyses the presence of the Caribbean in historical and fictional Scottish writing and considers the Scottish Creole figures Robert Wedderburn and Mary Seacole.


I currently teach across English and History on modules such as

  • Romantic to Victorian Literature
  • Early Modern Literature
  • Scotland and the Wider World
  • Making History 
  • Globalizing World
