Research title: Fraternity, feuds, and the academic bubble: Masculinities at Scotland’s universities between 1560-1606

Research Summary

My PhD research looks at masculinities (systems of behaviour practised by men) present at the universities of early-modern Scotland, between roughly 1560 and 1610. My PhD work is funded by SGSAH.

I also research medieval masculinities in England and France, currently I'm looking at masculine behaviours displayed by abbots and monks in England.


I am funded by the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities Doctoral Training Partnership (SGSAH).
