Graeme Morton MA (Edinburgh), PhD (Edinburgh) is Professor of History and Chair of Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph in Canada. Until recently he was Senior Lecturer in Economic and Social History in the School of History and Classics at the University of Edinburgh. He specialises in the historical construction of Scottish national identity and nationalism since 1700, with particular emphasis on the creation of the Victorian cult of William Wallace. He currently serves on the council of the Scottish History Society, the Economic and Social History Society of Scotland, the Editorial Board of the Statistical Accounts of Scotland and the Edinburgh University Canadian Studies Committee. He is a member of the International Advisory Board of the Centre for Border Studies, University of Glamorgan, launched October 2003. His research interests include the theories of nationalism and governance in Britain and Canada, urban society, civil society and local/central government relations in Edinburgh and Scotland, 1800-1929. He is a member of a large international research project funded by the European Science Foundation to study 'Writing National Histories in Europe' (2003-2007). He was joint chair and organiser of sessions at both the fifth International Conference on Urban History, Berlin 2000, and the sixth International Conference on Urban History, Edinburgh 2002.

He is married to Angela, who is a rural sociologist, and together they are responsible for bringing into the world Sam and Evie, who are twins, and have now reached the age of eight. They are very excited about starting their new life in Guelph.
