My research interests include disability studies, gender theory, early modern Scotland & the old Scots language & how these areas of study might be mapped onto Scotland’s disability history. Incorporating these interests within my doctoral research, I will explore how people with various disabling conditions, mental or physical, lived within & related to the legal, social & gender-related structures of Scotland between 1500 & 1700. A central aim of my research is to incorporate the developments in disability politics, on a localised level & within digital media, within my work & in doing so create a culturally sensitive & relevant Scottish disability history.
