Martha McGill

My research interests lie in early modern British intellectual, social and cultural history. My work has explored how changing conceptions of the supernatural reflect on religious culture, developments in natural philosophy, relations between different social groups, and national identity.

I completed a PhD in History at the University of Edinburgh in 2016. I subsequently held postdoctoral fellowships at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, Edinburgh, and the Warburg Institue, London. In 2018 I started at the University of Warwick as a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow, working on a project entitled 'Bodies, Selves and the Supernatural in Early Modern Britain'. You can read more about this project in this blog post.

I am also Secretary of the Scottish History Society and Reviews Editor for History Scotland magazine.
