Personal profile

Research expertise

I am Programme Leader for BA (Hons) Drama and Performance and Lecturer in Literature at Inverness College, University of the Highlands and Islands. My doctoral thesis was undertaken at Strathclyde University and explored Ben Jonson's antimasques. I have taught Literature at the Universities of Strathclyde, Southampton, Northumbria and Glasgow before coming to Inverness College, University of the Highlands and Islands. My current research activities encompass Early Modern literature and culture, with an emphasis on material culture. I have published widely on the topic of Early Modern court festivals and culture, and currently I am investigating the presence and representation of Scots in court festivals at home and abroad. I am extremely involved in a number of public engagement activities including the Kingussie Food on Film festival, Caberfeidh Horizons - a social inclusion and enterprise project based in the Highlands, and I am a member of the board of  Kingussie Heritage. These activities have fuelled a broader interest in the theorising of cultural exchange, and have led to new developments in my research activities.   I am a member of the Royal Studies Network, The Early Modern Festival Network, the Society for Renaissance Studies, The Society for Court Studies and The International Federation of Theatre Reasearch. During 2018 I will be presenting my research at The Society for Renaisance Studies Conference, Sheffield University.

I am also part of the UHI Learning, Teaching and Research working group; involved with the UHI Cultural and Creative Industries Knowledge Exchange group, and engaged in undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum development.
