Voice of the Scottish People: Seminar Series at the University of Glasgow

University of Glasgow

Vox Populi: The Voice of the Scottish People in History is year-long seminar series presented by the University of Glasgow. Each seminar, which is free and open to the public, will be accompanied by an essay on the same topic in the Scotsman. Read more about the series here and find a list of seminars and speakers here.

The first seminar was September 25, 2012 on the "Declaration of Arbroath and its Legacy" by my supervisor Professor Edward J. Cowan and Professor Roger Mason. You can read their essay in the Scotsman here.

Two talks which I particularly wish I could attend are "National Opinion and the Union Question in the Union of  the Crowns" by my good friend Dr. Karin Bowie and "Republican Reality: Scotland and the United States of America (1790-1820)" by Dr. Emma Macleod. However, I shall have to content myself with the published essays.

This seminar series along with Billie Kay's radio series on Scottish Nationalism ought to help keep members of all Scotland's Diasporas (see previous posts here, here, and here) engaged with the real Scotland.
