History Scotland Editorial Board - Dr Karly Kehoe
Learn about the work of Dr Karly Kehoe, a member of the History Scotland magazine editorial board.
Dr S. Karly Kehoe is Canada Research Chair in Atlantic Canada Communities at Saint Mary's University, Halifax, Nova Scotia. She writes: 'I am a Scottish Historian by training and much of my work considers Scottish and Irish migrant communities in the context of religion, national identity and ethnicity.
I also research the links between the socioeconomic development of the Scottish Highlands and its Diaspora and plantation slavery in the Caribbean. I am a member of both the Royal Society of Edinburgh's Young Academy of Scotland and the Global Young Academy.
'I was asked by Alasdair [Dr Alasdair Ross, the magazine's editor] to join the board and I was delighted with the invitation because I really liked how the magazine shares research with the wider public. Currently, I'm working on a large project exploring the links that Scottish Highlanders had with plantation slavery in the Caribbean.
'We've called the project Landscapes and Lifescapes and after a very successful phase one, which included a symposium, a walking tour of connected spaces in Inverness and Cromarty, source booklet, the publication and planned publication of a number of scholarly articles, we are now launching phase two which incorporates the Canadian Maritimes, specifically Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
'I enjoy following History Scotland's Facebook page and I like that because there are things posted most days which make me stop for a minute and reflect.'
