Research interests

My research interests lie broadly in the intellectual, political and religious history of Scotland between c. 1450 and c. 1650, but I have particular interest in the following areas and would be happy to supervise postgraduate research on any aspect of them:

  • The reign of King James VI and I (1567-1625). 
  • Latin texts by Scottish authors and the role of Latin in Scottish cultural life, c.1480-1700. 
  • The career and writings of the divine and educational reformer Andrew Melville (1545-1622).
  • The Protestant reform of Scottish higher education, c.1560-1625. 
  • Developments in the Scottish church, c. 1450-c. 1650.
  • The impact of the European Renaissance and Reformation on Scotland, and vice versa.

My current major research projects include ongoing work investigating the history and culture of Latin poetry in Jacobean Scotland via the AHRC-funded 'Bridging the Continental Divide’ project, and a full-length study of the life and career of Archbishop Patrick Adamson (1537-1592), which will also assess the major political events and factional struggles of James VI’s minority, and Adamson’s place within them.


Grants

I am the principal investigator in the successful AHRC funding bid for the project Bridging the Continental Divide: neo-Latin and its cultural role in Jacobean Scotland. The project was awarded the grant in 2012.

I was one of eleven researchers on Alexander Broadie's project, funded by a £90,000 Leverhulme Trust International Network Grant, which investigated the history and development of philosophy in seventeenth-century Scotland, and its linkages with philosophical practice in France in the same period. The project included five workshops and a closing conference between 2010 and 2013, and has multiple outcomes in press, including two books, and a website in development which will continue to be updated as an ongoing resource.

I was awarded a Fulbright Scholars Award, funded by the US-UK Fulbright Commission and the Scottish Government, to take up the post of visiting lecturer in Church History at Yale Divinity School between January and May 2012, where I taught a course on the history of the Scottish Reformation and its impact on Scotland’s cultural life. Whilst there I also continued my work on the neo-Latin poetry of Andrew Melville, the results of which appeared in the edited collection on Melville co-edited with Professor Roger Mason.
