I go by the name Myles, and I am a historian of Britain in the long 18th century. My research examines Presbyterian dissenters in Scotland and their religious and political cultures. I am interested in the way dissenters sought to navigate the tensions between their religious beliefs and the demands of secular society.
I am an officer in the United States Air Force on an exchange assignment to complete a doctoral degree. I previously completed an ALM at Harvard University’s Extension School with a master's thesis entitled Yet the Fire Did Not Consume It: Religious Nonconformity in South and West Scotland, 1661-1668 and a BS in History at the United States Air Force Academy.
