Research interests

I am a historian of gender in early modern Scotland and Europe, with a particular interest in the history of work and the family in the long eighteenth century. I am currently completing a monograph entitled Women, Family and Domestic Enterprise in Glasgow’s Economy, c.1740-1830 (Forthcoming, New Historical Perspectives). The research conducted for that book establishes a new narrative about Glasgow as a developing city: one that places women and their work centre stage. It uncovers women’s economic activity in the bustling streets of eighteenth and early nineteenth-century Glasgow, tracing links with trans-Atlantic trade, identifying women’s contributions to the household economy and demonstrating the ways that urban women’s work provided crucial structure to support economic development in the city.
