Writings from Scotland before the Union (Conference)

Poster for Writing in Scotland Before Union Conference 2017Presented by the Centre for Scottish Culture, University of Dundee

With Scottish national identity playing a key role in the political landscape of the British Isles, notions of “Scottishness” are now under scrutiny like never before. The culture of Scotland before the Act of Union of 1707 and how Scotland represented herself in literary terms, however, is often overlooked in these arguments.

Hosted by the Centre for Scottish Culture, 'Writings from Scotland Before the Union' is an annual one-day conference examining the literary culture of Scotland prior to the Act of Union of 1707, with the objective of gaining a clearer, more rounded understanding of how Scotland saw herself in literary terms before formal Union.
