Dr Timothy Riding (primarily based at the University of York) joined The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) at the University of Edinburgh, as a Scottish Arts and Humanities Alliance (SAHA) Postdoctoral Fellow in November 2021. Dr Riding’s project will contribute to the institute’s project on decolonising education. It will aim to inform and improve teaching on colonialism in the Scottish secondary education curriculum, in particular the presentation of the Darien colonial scheme of the late 1690s.
