Brendan Gillis teaches courses on early North America, Great Britain, and the British Empire. A cultural historian of law and government, he is working on a book project titled Cosmopolitan Parochialism: A Global History of the British Magistrate, 1690-1835, which highlights the role of local decisions in constructing broader systems of rule. The American Antiquarian Society awarded Dr. Gillis the Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship to support his research and writing. He has also received funding from such institutions at the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library at UCLA, the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon, and the McNeil Center for Early American Studies.
