Dr Iida Saarinen (Edinburgh and Stirling)
'(The Headache of) Doing Prosopography: The Making of Scottish Catholic Priests in the Nineteenth Century'
As part of a nation-wide exchange of postgraduate scholars, the University of Glasgow in conjunction with the Royal Historical Society will be hosting the recently completed Dr Iida Saarinen (University of Edinburgh) for a talk on her experience of successfully undertaking and completing PhD research. Dr Saarinen’s PhD comprised a prosopographical study of students and social identities among the Scots training to be Roman Catholic priests in the Scots College, Paris, between 1793 and 1878. In this session she will provide an overview of her research, reflect on prosopography as a methodological framework for PhD research and how you can use it in your own work, and on the experience of doing a PhD more generally. This promises to give both an insight into what it’s like to have recently completed a PhD and how to use prosopography as a major research tool.
