The project

The Scottish Revival Network initiates conversations and debates on the Scottish Revival in literature and culture from the 1880s to the 1950s. Led by Dr Scott Lyall (Edinburgh Napier University) and Dr Michael Shaw (University of Stirling), the network proposes a ‘long’ Scottish Revival that makes explicit the cultural, intellectual and political links between the fin-de-siècle Scottish Revival and the Scottish renaissance movement of the early decades of the twentieth century. Beginning in August 2021, the network will bring together an international group of academics for a series of online events, as well as public events at the Patrick Geddes Centre and the National Library of Scotland.

Our next event, ‘Global Scottish Revival’ will take place on Monday, November 28th, from 2pm to 4.30pm UK time. We’ll share the registration link for the event soon, both here and on our Twitter account. In the meantime, if you’d like to catch up with any of our previous talks and events you can find recordings on our YouTube channel.

The exact date for all other events will be confirmed in due course. We hope that some of these events will be able to take place in person. Please keep an eye on this page for updates, or follow us on Twitter or Facebook or just let us know if you would like us to keep you informed about future events.
