Research Profile on Research@StAndrews
Teaching and Research Interests
I began my career working on aspects of the European Reformation. My first book was a study of religious refugee communities in the sixteenth century, and since then I have published on the Dutch Revolt, and on the Reformation in Germany, France and England, as well as a general survey history of the sixteenth century. In the last years the focus of my research has shifted towards an interest in the history of communication, and especially the history of the book. I run a research group that in 2011 completed a survey of all books published before1601: the Universal Short Title Catalogue. This work will continue, in 2012-2016, with work to incorporate new discoveries and continue the survey into the seventeenth century. In 2010 I published an award-winning study of The Book in the Renaissance, and I am now working on a history of news. I will return to the Reformation for a study of Luther’s writings for the Reformation anniversary of 2017.
I am the lead editor of two monograph series: the St Andrews Studies in Reformation History, and The Library of the Written Word. In 2012 I will begin a three year term as Vice-President of the Royal Historical Society.
I welcome enquiries from potential postgraduate students working on any aspect of the Reformation or Book History.
