Members are encouraged to send a short, third person biographical paragraph and list of research interests to Sharon L. Krossa, <skrossa-hs @A@T@ MedievalScotland .D.O.T. org>. Please indicate whether or not you would like your e-mail address published. (E-mail addresses will only be published disguised, like those in the listings above, to try to discourage spam.) Listing of degrees is optional; it is only suggested because it might prove interesting to see the variety of backgrounds that have led to an interest in Scottish pre-modern women's history. If you have a personal or historical web page, this may also be included. Those who have publications, especially ones related to Scottish women's history, are encouraged to list the titles. (Members who are undergraduate students and others who are not professional academics, please don't be put off by this! Anyone who is seriously interested in Scottish women's history in this period is welcome, whatever their background or current occupation.)
