Establishing SNNEC: Scottish and European Exchanges Then (1780-1914), and Now

Prize: Other distinction


The project explores inter-cultural exchanges between Scotland and Europe’s peoples, places, built environments, imagined spaces, and material cultures during the long nineteenth century (1780-1914). A collaboration between university-based scholars working in fields related to European cultures, and the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, this project interrogates the idea of Europe in the past and discusses its relevance to Scotland today. It will achieve this through 3 academic cross-disciplinary workshops and 1 knowledge exchange event, engaging leading historians, literary critics, policy makers, creative industry partners and the general public. The knowledge exchange events will bring together interested researchers and practitioners in academic, private and public fields, and will seek to stimulate new research directions for future collaborations. A Scottish Archeological Research Framework public resource (via ScARF) will be piloted to record and continuously update our findings, serving as testament to the lasting legacy of Scotland’s worldwide reputation for meaningful exchanges.
