Robert Burns and the Diaspora

Robert Burns, Diaspora, New Zealand, Literature
Celebrate Burns Day by listening the inaugural lecture, Imagining Scotland and the Scottish Diaspora, presented by Dr. Liam McIlvanney, the Stuart Chair in Scottish Studies, at the University of Otego in October 2013.

In this lecture McIlvanny first examines the theme of emigration in the work of Robert Burns. He then discusses the role literature, including that of Burns, plays in forming the identity of the Scottish Diaspora. 

Find the lecture at iTunes University here.
