The Shaping of Scottish Identities: Family, Nation, and the World Beyond

Centre for Scottish Studies
contact email: 

In 1994, T.C. Smout pointed to the concentric loyalties which go to make up the identity of those who see themselves as Scottish. Some of these loyalties were examined in the 1998 volume Image and Identity: the making and re-making of Scotland through the ages (Edinburgh, 1998). Building on that work and the last decade of new research, The Centre for Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph would like to continue this discussion by inviting proposals for the second volume in the Guelph Series in Scottish Studies, The Shaping of Scottish Identities: Family, Nation, and the World Beyond.
