Lecture Series: The Lost Scottish Identity

About Lecture Series: The Lost Scottish Identity

The Scottish identity has changed greatly over the past 400 years, with significant dynastic and political changes acting as the catalyst for the most recognisable shifts in what it meant to be Scottish.

One of the largest of these changes was the Act of Union in 1707 and this lecture will explore the events in the lead up to it, understanding the issues that divided the people of Edinburgh. In the aftermath of the Union, one national identity dominated the narrative, but where are the other, lost identities, and how have these affected modern day Scotland?

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Lecture Series: The Lost Scottish Identity are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
