Biography

I was lecturer in the Department of English Studies, University of Strathclyde (1995-2000), and Research Fellow at the Centre for Walter Scott Studies, University of Aberdeen (1993-5). I am a graduate of the universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde and of St Andrew's College of Education, Glasgow. My PhD thesis was on 'The Invention of Scottish Literature During the Long Eighteenth Century'.

During the summer of 2002 I was W. Ormiston Roy Memorial Visiting Research Fellow at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, USA. During 2011 I was Visiting Professor in English Studies at the University of Wyoming and in 2012 Visiting Honorary Research Fellow at All Souls College, University of Oxford and Visiting Fellow at the University of Otago, New Zealand. Since 2018 I have been Visiting Professor in English Studies at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (Chengdu). I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh

Research interests

RESEARCH INTERESTS

Robert Burns Studies

I am General Editor of the Oxford University Press Collected Works of Robert Burns, currently for the edition co-editing Correspondence (3 vols) and editing Poetry (2 vols). The websites for the AHRC funded projects, ‘Editing Robert Burns for the 21st Century’ underpinning the OUP edition feature existing edition outputs, documentaries and other material. My long-standing work on Burns, both criticism and textual editing matters, has seen the publication of Robert Burns (Northcote, 2006), as editor: The Edinburgh Companion to Robert Burns (EUP, 2009) and two other co-edited collections of critical essays on the writer. I have also published several dozen essays on Burns, and I have edited what is likely to be the largest collection of criticism ever to appear on the poet, The Oxford Handbook of Robert Burns (2024). I am writing a major monograph, Robert Burns: Patronage, Fraternity & the People and I am contracted to write a new biography of Burns to appear in 2027.

My Burns work saw me establish the hugely successful Centre for Robert Burns Studies at Glasgow in 2007 (which, especially in relation to the OUP edition, has garnered millions of pounds of research income). I am Honorary Advisor on Robert Burns to the National Trust for Scotland and Secretary and Trustee at Robert Burns Ellisland Museum and Farm. With my Burns colleagues at Glasgow, I am increasingly involved in manuscript authentication work, advising national and international institutions and auction-houses. In 2021 I was made the first Honorary Fellow of the World Burns Federation.

Scottish Literary Studies

Somewhat ironically, since I have expended much energy writing against ‘generalist’ accounts of Scottish Literature that feature an over-reliance on ‘tradition’, a prominent part of my scholarship has dealt with the history of Scottish Literature. I am editor of The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Scottish Literature (2024), co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to Scottish Literature (2012) and other critical compendia that take the ‘long’ view of writing in Scotland. My Scottish Literature (2009) for Edinburgh University Press also deals with Scottish literary history and critical and theoretical approaches to it. The Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopaedia of Scottish Literature which I am co-editing is due to appear in 2025. In this general area I have also worked on the History of Scottish PEN and written on the history of the teaching of Scottish Literature at Glasgow. I am especially interested in confessional (religious) as well as secular/political aspects of Scottish culture.

Related to my interest in the construction of Scottish Literature and its interaction with nationality, most especially with regard to the periods of Enlightenment and Romanticism, I have co-edited two critical collections, English Romanticism and the Celtic World (Cambridge University Press, 2003) and Literature & Union: Scottish Texts, British Contexts (Oxford University Press, 2018).

A natural appendage to my interest in Scottish Literature has been in the area of anthologies: for the Everyman Classics series I have edited Scottish Poetry (2006), Burns, Poems (2009) and Scottish Short Stories (2023). I also edited the peer-reviewed, scholarly journals, Scottish Literary Review (2014-2019), organ of the Association for Scottish Literature and, as co-editor, the Burns Chronicle (2020-22).

Literature, History & Politics 1789-1832 (especially in the West of Scotland)

Out of my interests in radical politics, literature and culture of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries have appeared the co-edited, Thomas Muir of Huntershill: Essays for the Twenty First Century (Humming Earth, 2016) and 1820: Scottish Rebellion, essays on a nineteenth-century insurrection (John Donald, 2022). In this area too, and in work I have done with Paisley Museum, I am especially interested in the poet, Alexander Wilson and I produced the film, One Night in Paisley, 1822 (2022).

Nineteenth-Century Fiction

I have interests in Walter Scott, as co-editor of his Reliquiae Trotcosienses (Edinburgh University Press, 2006), and I am co-editor of The International Companion to John Galt (ASLS, 2017). I serve on the Joint Advisory Committee at Abbotsford (Scott’s Melrose home and library), and, with the late Ian McGhee, I founded the John Galt Society in 2014, serving as its first Chair until 2019.

Twentieth Century

I have some twentieth-century research interests, editing The Devil to Stage: Five Plays by James Bridie (ASLS, 2007), delivering the 2018 ‘Hugh MacDiarmid Lecture’ at the Scottish Poetry Library on W.S. Graham (whom I believe to be Scotland’s greatest poet of the twentieth century) published by Studies in Scottish Literature at the University of South Carolina as Born in a Diamond, screeched from a mountain pap (2019), and co-editing, The Crooked Dividend: New Essays on Muriel Spark (2023). My dozen essays on Spark are frequently cited.

 

For the Future I am developing work on heresy trials through the eighteenth century around the city and university of Glasgow.
