Dr Eloise Grey

Historian of Scotland, Emotions and Empire

Dr Eloise Grey is an Independent Scholar and Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen. She completed her PhD in History at the University of Aberdeen in 2020. She taught history at undergraduate level from 2018 to 2023 and is now an independent scholar.

Her research work on eighteenth century families uses methodologies from the history of emotions to show how British families marginalised African-descended and Asian people. In this way British families came to embody whiteness in service to the colonial project at home and overseas.
