Alexander Crawford

Alexander is a second year PhD candidate in the School of Divinity, History, and Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen, and is currently funded by CISRUL and the St. Andrews Society of Washington D.C.. He completed a BA (Hons) at Ave Maria University in 2013, and an MLitt by research in Medieval History at the University of Aberdeen in 2014. His principal research interests relate to the identification and conceptualisation of ‘political community’ within the context of the Middle Ages; particularly in Medieval Scotland. Through the application of social network analysis methodologies, his thesis attempts to first establish and then conceptualise the forces which enabled and compelled the generation, maintenance, and termination of noble connections throughout thirteenth century Scotland in order to develop a reasoned appreciation of the ‘essence’ of socio-political interaction, thereby informing a view to the composition and functioning of the ‘political community’.
