Research and Teaching

Ken MacMillan teaches and researches the history of early modern England and the Atlantic World, circa 1500-1800. He is a 3M National Teaching Fellow, Canada's highest post-secondary teaching recognition. His books include Sovereignty and Possession in the English New World: The Legal Foundations of Empire (2006), The Atlantic Imperial Constitution: Center and Periphery in the English Atlantic World (2011), and John Dee: The Limits of the British Empire (2004). He is completing a SSHRC-funded study of crime reporting in early modern England, which has thus far led to the publication of Stories of True Crime in Tudor and Stuart England (2015) and the forthcoming Death and Disorder: A History of Early Modern England, 1485-1690 (2020). Longer-term research goals include an investigation into crime and punishment in the English overseas empire.
