I am a historian based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

I work on nineteenth and twentieth century history, with a particular interest in cities, maps and knowledge. You can find out more here about my current research and teaching at the University of Edinburgh, and how I’ve brought my interests to exhibitions and other forms of public engagement. I also write about art, architecture and cities.

Come and chat with me on Twitter: I’m @AnnaFeintuck. You can also find pictures I’ve taken of urban explorations, Scottish landscapes and my garden on Instagram, where I’m @anna_j_f (though I’m taking a break from it so haven’t posted in quite a while!).

I love cycling, swimming, early mornings, maps (of course), and talking to beagles.
