I teach a range of modules that cover early modern Europe c. 1450-1714 with a focus on the Renaissance and Reformation as well as the Tudor and Stuart periods in England and Scotland. Modules include: ‘The Politics of Gender: Sex and Power’, ‘Religion, Superstition, and Fear’, ‘Religion, Revolution and Regicide: The British Civil Wars’, and ‘Protestantism and Puritanism: Moderates and Radicals’.

Erin’s research-informed teaching is guided by the principle of learning by doing and uses of a range of teaching strategies to study the particularities (and peculiarities!) of early modern history.
My research interests and area of expertise is seventeenth-century Britain, particularly the Civil Wars and Restoration. More specifically, I am interested in early modern print culture as well as forms of memory, collective trauma, commemoration, and post-conflict cultures.
