Research overview

A graduate of medieval history from the universities of Melbourne and Edinburgh, Katie Stevenson's main research interests centre on culture as a mode of communication in the exercise of power in the late Middle Ages. She has researched and written extensively on late medieval Scotland, including a volume of the New History of Scotland series published by Edinburgh University Press, Power and Propaganda: Scotland, 1306-1488. Dr Stevenson's current research project, The Power of Pedigree: The Stewart Dynasty and the Foundations of Royal Authority is an exploration of the relationship between dynasticism and propaganda in the creation, assertion and maintenance of authority.

Dr Stevenson currently holds the position of Vice-Principal Collections, Music and Digital Content in the Principal's Office. She is former Keeper of Scottish History and Archaeology at National Museums Scotland, and was co-founding director and former CEO of University spin-out company Smart History Ltd.
