Dr Angela Bartie
Lecturer in Scottish History
University of Edinburgh
Angela is a lecturer in Scottish History at the University of Edinburgh. Her previous roles include lecturer in History at the University of Strathclyde and acting director of the Scottish Oral History Centre.
Her research interests centre on social and cultural change in post-war Britain, especially during the 1960s, with particular interests in youth culture, juvenile delinquency (especially related to gangs), representations of youth and moral panics, as well as changing concepts and practices of ‘culture’ and the arts in society.
In 2008-09 she worked with Louise Jackson on the ESRC funded project ‘Policing Post-war Youth: a Comparative Study of England and Scotland c. 1945-1971’. This focused on everyday regulation of young people under 17 by police officers, magistrates, social workers and other practitioners and project will consider grassroots experiences, inter- and multi-agency responses to youth justice and child welfare, and changing responses and approaches to policing youth in post-war Britain.
She has published on official responses to youth gangs in sixties Glasgow and aspects of the policing of youth in post-war Britain.
