Amy Dunagin is an assistant professor of history, specializing in the cultural and political history of Britain and its empire. Her research focuses on how Britons made send of their shifting cultural identities during the transformative decades of the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. She is currently completing a book manuscript entitled "English Identity and Italian Music," in which she explores how English audiences interpreted the popularity of Italian Music at a time otherwise known for xenophobia, anti-Catholicism, and national cultural pride.
She is also embarking on a second project on Ulster Scot migration and identity in the eighteenth-century British Atlantic. Her article "Tory Defenses of English Music: Thomas Tudway and Roger North" appeared in Eighteenth-Century Life in 2016.
Dunagin received her doctorate in history and musicology from Yale University. Prior to her appointment at KSU, she taught world history, European history, and music history at Oklahoma City, Quinnipiac, and Yale Universities. She also served as Managing Editor of the interdisciplinary journal Eighteenth-Century Studies from 2017-2017. She currently teaches courses on world history and British history.
