Civic Scotland

Date(s) - 22/10/2011
All Day


Day Workshop sponsored by the Carnegie Trust  for the Universities of Scotland, University of Aberdeen.

Following on from SWINC’s successful Glasgow workshop, ‘Secret
Scotland, Civic Scotland’ is a workshop to explore forms of public,
civic and institutional knowledge in nineteenth-century Scotland. We
will look at ways in which ideas about political organisation, urban
space, national memory, and scientific discovery constitute Scotland’s
sense of itself as a civic nation with a cultural memory in the second
half of the century.

Papers will be on the Scott Memorial and the Royal Mile, emigration
and Empire, liberalism, science and religion.

The event is now fully booked but please e-mail Sarah Ames to be placed on the reserve list.
