Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

England swung, as the song went, in the 1960s. What about Scotland? The period is being freshly reinterpreted as a time of creative ferment and upheaval, when a new generation of writers challenged the Establishment on nationalism, politics and the Scottish language. Eleanor Bell talks about 'the Scottish Sixties', while Corey Gibson looks at Hamish Henderson's work in this period.

In partnership with the British Academy and the University of Edinburgh.
