History Scotland editorial board - Professor Kevin James

b65399eb-1820-4c8e-b764-f02704901531

Learn more about the work of Professor Kevin James, one of the members of the History Scotland magazine Editorial Board.

Kevin James is Professor of History at the University of Guelph, Canada. His interests lie in Scottish travel history, and the place of the inn and the hotel in nineteenth-century travel networks. He is especially interested in texts generated through travel, with a focus on the hotel visitors' book.
 
As someone whose career has also been dedicated to community outreach, he enjoys the ways that History Scotland has successfully reached a broad audience to communicate innovative research, and as a Canadian he is keenly aware of the very strong interest in Scottish History outside Scotland's borders that the magazine both satisfies and nourishes.
