St Andrews Historian at Identity, Independence, and Interdependence Workshop 26 May 2014

298px-University_of_Edinburgh_logo.svgSt Andrews historian Dr Michael Brown – who researches late medieval Scotland during the Wars of Independence and its aftermath – will be leading discussion at a workshop in May. Michael Brown’s recent books include Bannockburn: The Scottish War and the British Isles, 1307-1323.

In the run up to September’s referendum, the School of History, Classics and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh is hosting workshop on identity, independence, and interdependence in historical perspective. Drawing on a range of disciplinary approaches and evidence from a variety of places and periods (from the prehistoric to the modern), this one-day meeting will examine the relationship between a community’s sense of identity and its political independence.

Dr Michael Brown will be joined by Professor Ewen Cameron (University of Edinburgh) and Dr Alison Cathcart (University of Strathclyde). 

Attendance is free and all staff and postgraduates, but interested parties are asked to please register their attendance by 15 May.
