Bruce Buchan is Professor in The School of Humanities, Languages and Social
Science and a faculty member of The Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research,
Griffith University, Queensland, Australia. His work connects European political
thought with the experience of empire and colonization, especially during the Early
Modern and Enlightenment periods. His current research focuses on the conceptual
prehistory of race in the teaching of medicine and moral philosophy, and on colonial
travel during the Scottish Enlightenment. Piracies in World History (ed., Amsterdam
UP, 2021) and Sound, Space and Civility in the British World, c. 1700–1850 (ed.,
Routledge, 2019) are two of Professor Buchan’s recent publications. Bruce Buchan will be at SCAS as a
Residential General Fellow during the spring of 2024.

Dr. Hannah Field is Senior Lecturer in Victorian Literature (English) in the School
of Media, Arts and Humanities at the University of Sussex, UK. Her research focuses
on book history, children’s literature and 19th century studies. Her monograph Playing
with the Book: Victorian Movable Picture Books and the Child Reader
 was published
by U of Minnesota P in 2019 and won the Children's Literature Association Book Award
as well as the Bibliographical Society of America's Justin G. Schiller Prize. Dr. Field
will spend the academic year of 2023–24 at SCAS as a resident General Fellow. Her
project explores how computational methods can uncover what copyright libraries
rejected in nineteenth-century England, providing a reverse image of the literary canon.

Jerome de Groot is Professor of Literature and Culture in the Department of English,
American Studies and Creative Writing at The University of Manchester, UK, where
he also is Director for the AHRC North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership.
 His research interests include public and popular history, the historical novel, and the
literature and culture of the English Revolution (c.1640–1660). Professor de Groot
recently published Double Helix History (Routledge 2022) which looks at the relation-
ship between DNA and History since 2000. Among his other works are Consuming
 (Routledge 2008; 2nd ed. 2016) and Remaking History (Routledge 2015),
both of which concern the  ways in which contemporary popular culture engages with history. Jerome de
Groot will spend the fall term of 2023 at SCAS as a Residential General Fellow.
