Iain MacKinnon works at the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience at Coventry University. His work seeks to understand and support traditional knowledge systems and land-based cultural practices of Scottish Gaels. In recent years this has led him to investigate the ‘domestic colonisation’ of the modern Gaidhealtachd and forms of resistance to that. Current research also includes analysis of connections between plantation slavery and the Highland Clearances. He belongs to a crofting family on the Isle of Skye and identifies as a Scottish Gael.
