Mariah Hudec is a fourth-year PhD Candidate in Literary and Scottish studies at the University of Guelph. She received a BA (Hons) in History from Cape Breton University, and an MScR in Scottish History from the University of Edinburgh, where her research focused on fairy belief in the context of the Scottish witch-hunts. Her current research focuses two nineteenth-century forms of popular print: collections of Scottish "superstitions" or folk beliefs and Scottish children's literature and explores how these genres have participated in discourses of gender, authenticity, and national identity. Mariah serves the Centre for Scottish Studies as Assistant Editor for the International Review of Scottish Studies.
