Dr Ainsley McIntosh

Ainsley McIntosh is a Daphne Jackson Fellow at The University of Edinburgh in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures.

With a Masters in Scottish and English Literature from the University of Aberdeen, Ainsley won the Carnegie/Caledonian PhD Scholarship in 2005, which she held at the University of Aberdeen. On completion of her PhD,  Ainsley worked as a Research Fellow and Lecturer at the same university.

Returning to research after a ten year break, Ainsley proposes to study the annotations of manuscripts during the romantic era and investigate what the annotations tell us about the author.

Her project is titled: Thinking in Ink: Composition, Materiality, and Mediation in Nineteenth-Century Scottish Literature

Due to finish in 2023, her Fellowship is sponsored by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
