Biography

Email address: m.s.morris@dundee.ac.uk

 

Michael joined the University of Dundee in 2018. Previously, his PhD was at University of Glasgow and his postdoctoral fellowship was at IASH at the University of Edinburgh, and he spent four years at Liverpool John Moores University. 

Research

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.

 

 

Teaching

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
