Research interests

Dr Macdonald was appointed as Reader in Late Modern Scottish History in October 2011.

Research interests:

  • Socio-political and cultural history of Scotland from 1832.
  • Scottish Studies: interdisciplinary studies of late-modern Scottish society and culture (principally literature).

Current projects:

  • Evolution of Scottish Historiography after 1832
  • Scottish political poetry
  • Heritage and history in a Scottish context
  • History of student politics in Scotland 1886-1997

Supervision

I am pleased to supervise research projects that fall broadly within my areas of research expertise, namely the socio-political history of Scotland from 1707; Scottish historiography; Scottish cultural studies since 1832.

I have successfully supervised and examined in the following areas: Scottish cultural history; history of professionalization; welfare; C20th military history; the modern Scottish novel; C20th Highland history.

I am currently supervising projects in the following areas:

  • inter-war Scottish capitalism;
  • R.B. Cunningham Graham;
  • life and reputation of Patrick Dollan;
  • Highland and Irish communities in Scotland – a comparative study.

Teaching

I currently teach on History 1A (Scotland’s Millenium: Kingdom, Union and Nation, 1000-1999), and supervise undergraduate dissertation students specialising in modern Scottish history.

I convene Honours courses in modern Scottish socio-political history and Scottish e/im/migration and co-ordinate the provision of JYA courses in Scottish studies. A current interest is the development of on-line learning resources in the same area for distance learning students.

At Masters level I supervise dissertations for MLitt History and MLitt Scottish History students, and teach on courses such as Issues and Ideologies in Modern Scotland. I also teach with colleagues in Scottish Literature on the Memorialising Scottish Culture (Hons) course.

If you have an interest in CPD courses in the area of modern Scottish history and culture, please get in touch. I have expertise in this area, and am happy to talk through a range of options that are available.
