Personal profile

Research Expertise

Dr Andrew Lind undertook his undergraduate, masters and PhD research at the University of Glasgow, before joining the University of the Highlands and Islands as a Lecturer in 2021. His thesis explored and examined the various manifestations of Scottish Royalism during the British Civil Wars (c.1638-1651). While the civil war period remains Andrew's primary research area, he is also interested in the political, religious and military history of Northern Europe more broadly. Andrew has disseminated his research widely in peer-reviewed journals and edited collections, including papers in the Journal of Northern Renaissance, Chris Langley’s (ed) The National Covenant in Scotland, 1638-1689 (Woodbridge, 2020) and Matthew Ward and Matthew Heffernan’s (eds) Loyalty to the Monarchs of Late Medieval and Early Modern Britain, c.1400-1688 (Basingstoke, 2020). In addition to his academic outputs, Andrew has contributed to a number of knowledge exchange and public impact projects, including work with the SQA, as well as television appearances on BBC Scotland’s ‘Blood of the Clans’ (2020) and Sky History’s ‘River Hunters’ (2020).
