Dr Lachlan McKinnon is an Oral Historian and SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the Gorsebrook Research Institute for Atlantic Canada Studies, Saint Mary's University in Halifax, Canada. He completed his Ph.D. at the Center for Oral History and Digital Storytelling at Concordia University in Montreal in History in 2016 with a thesis titled: Deindustrialization on the Periphery: An Oral History of Sydney Steel, 1945-2016. The thesis examined oral histories of workers displaced by the closure of industrial or manufacturing workplaces and is currently being prepared for publication by Toronto University Press. He has published a number of journal articles and book chapters, and is also co-editor with Steven High and Andrew Perchard, The Deindustrialized World: Confronting Ruination in Post-Industrial Places (Vancouver: University of British Columbia Press 2017). His current research is a comparative study of workers' experiences of displacement and state policy in Canada, Ireland, and the Scottish Highlands. In addition to the many awards he has received in the past, he has been recently awarded a prestigious Dobbin Atlantic Scholarship to enable him to carry out this research in Ireland as Visiting Fellow in the Department of History at UL, where he had spent part of 2008/2009 as a Study Abroad Student.
