About the speaker:

Amy Blakeway received her PhD in 2010 from Clare College, University of Cambridge. In 2011 she held a fellowship at the Huntington Library in California, and for the academic year 2011-12 she was the Fulbright-Robertson Visiting Professor of British History at Westminster College in Missouri. In 2012, she returned to Cambridge as a Junior Research Fellow at Homerton College, where she stayed until starting at Kent in 2015.

Amy Blakeway’s research explores political history in the broadest sense, interested both the governors and the governed – and how they relate through the process of governance. This has led her to research a wide range of subjects. Her first book explored how having a child monarch affected political life, and propaganda and the use of texts to control and influence political life is another important interest. Sixteenth-century Scotland was a vibrant and outward-looking polity, and Scotland’s place in the wider European picture is another key research concern – much as the men and women of that time and place themselves always kept one eye on the continent.
