Rediscovering the Scots: A Colloquium to Inaugurate the Chair in Canadian-Scottish Studies
The Scottish influence in Canadian history has been of undeniable importance, facilitated by intensifying transatlantic ties between Scotland and northern North America and manifested in multiple spheres of Canadian society, from business and government to education and cultural life. As historians increasingly investigate Canadian history’s transnational dimensions, there remains much to discover about the Scottish connection and its diverse impacts. This one-day colloquium, Rediscovering the Scots, inaugurates the St. Andrew’s Society/McEuen Scholarship Foundation Chair in Canadian-Scottish Studies, and begins a conversation that will work towards defining and realizing a broader research agenda for the study of the Scots and Scottishness in Quebec and Canadian history.
Join us for presentations by scholars from across the country. The colloquium, open to the public, will take place at the McGill Faculty Club (3450 McTavish Street) on April 6 from 12 pm to 5 pm. A cocktail reception will follow.
