Hello Dear Visitor,

I’m Danielle Fatzinger, PhD, currently a Team Leader in the Adam Smith Business School at the University of Glasgow. I was formerly Research Policy Officer (with the Lab for Academic Culture and the University of Glasgow Library, Information Services) and Graduate Teaching Assistant in the University of Glasgow’s Celtic & Gaelic department. I also have previous experience as a Digital Curator and Postgraduate Researcher Development Office Intern.

As Team Leader, I support students, academic colleagues, and professional services colleagues with the smooth running of the Economic subject's programmes. My role involves line management of programme administrators, supporting the Programmes Manager, and collaborating with colleagues to implement improvements and processes around skills development, team communications, and policies (such as course/programme approvals and Quality Enhancement activities) within the subject and School. This involves a high level of attention to detail, curiosity, and the organisation of information and resources. I enjoy having varied and engaging projects to work on that give me room to be creative, think critically, and utilise my research skills to support my work and workplace community, and I enjoy working to help our team and School be successful.

I continue to engage in research activities focused on the themes found in my thesis, and I am a member of the Friends of the Argyll Papers. Most recently, I presented at the Outlander Conference at the University of Glasgow in July 2023 with a paper titled '‘She’s even misspelled “help”!’: The Mackenzie Fraser Men and Gaelic Education in the Scottish Highlands'. 

I also avidly engage in textile arts - primarily knitting and crochet, but also cross stitch and spinning, and I've got my eye on weaving and quilting. I have an Instagram where I semi-regularly practice my Gàidhlig (with English translation) and post about some of my crafts: @bioranfighe.s.peann (Knitting Needles and a Pen).

You can find me on LinkedIn or reach out to me via my Get in Touch page.


My PhD research focuses on manuscript production, patron/scribe relationships, literary culture, and cultural identity through the analysis of four late-seventeenth century Gaelic manuscripts written in Kintyre, Argyll by a scribe named Eoghan MacGilleoin for two Clan Campbell patrons and archival records related to the three men.
