About the Project

This project is intended to investigate the ideology, philosophy and diffusion of Scottish Liberalism in the long nineteenth century. This may include the study of Scottish philosophers, politicians, Presbyterian clergymen, commercial corporations, military, and agents of the British Empire. Topics might include comparing the different conceptions of Liberalism, the ways in which it affected the Scottish political landscape or tracing the global diffusion of Scottish Liberalism in the British world. The project will build on the expertise and resources of the Research Institute for Irish and Scottish Studies, which includes an active seminar and workshop series. The Institute also hosts a number of ongoing research projects that are relevant to this project, notably United Islands? Poetry and Song in the Age of Revolution.
