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 awarded by the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. 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 presently working on a SSHRC-funded study of death and crime in early modern England, which has thus far led to the publication of Stories of True Crime in Tudor and Stuart England (2015). This project is being further developed in a book for the University of Toronto Press on the subject of death from numerous causes, including murder, execution, assassination, suicide, disease, and war. Longer-term research goals include an investigation into the development of crime courts in the English overseas empire.
