February 2020 Meeting
20th February, 7:30pm
Dunfermline Historical Society will hold it’s AGM at 7:30pm in the Abbey Church Halls, followed shortly by a talk presented by Prof. Ewen Cameron –
“Dunfermline: WW1 through to the 1918 Election”.
Prof Cameron studied History and Public Relations at the University of Aberdeen and then completed a PhD on Government policy in the Scottish Highlands (1880 to 1925), at the University of Glasgow. Following a spell as a teaching Fellow at the University of St Andrews, he was appointed to a lectureship in Scottish History at Edinburgh University in 1993. He has been there ever since and currently holds the Fraser Chair of Scottish History and Palaeography. He is also Head of the School of History, Classics & Archaeology. He has research interests in a number of areas: the history of the Scottish Highlands, including comparisons with Irish history, the general history of Scotland since 1880 on which he has authored a book, ‘Impaled Upon a Thistle,’ and currently, the position of Scotland within the Union, which has prompted his recent work on the history of Scottish Universities in the late 19th and 20th centuries.
