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 has brought together an international group of academics for a series of online seminars and public events.
Our next – and final – online event, ‘The Revival and the National Movement’, will take place on Zoom on Thursday, January 19th 2023, from 5pm to 6.30pm UK time. It will feature talks by our network members Alan Riach (University of Glasgow), Paul Malgrati (University of Glasgow), and Frances Fowle (University of Edinburgh), who will be considering the intersections between the Scottish Revival as a cultural movement and the national movement in politics. You can sign up for the event here. 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.
