  • Biography/ Background

    Dr Abaigéal Warfield is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions. She is part of the ‘Change' program, led by Professor David Lemmings.

    Abaigéal completed her B.A. at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, where she studied English and History. She then went on to embark on a research degree, entering into the integrated M.Litt/Ph.D. program at the Department of History in Maynooth. During her final year as an undergraduate, Abaigéal became fascinated with early modern print culture. It was this interest that spurred her on to complete a Ph.D. on the media representation of the crime of witchcraft in early modern Germany in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. She graduated with her Ph.D. in 2013, and is currently working on her first monograph, based on her doctoral research.

    Following the completion of her Ph.D. Abaigéal worked at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland as a Teaching Fellow (2013/14) where she taught various aspects of early modern European history with a focus on German history from the sixteenth and seventeenth century, as well as historiography. Before moving to Adelaide, she also taught history at Maynooth University for the Department of Adult and Community Education.
