Please join us for the next session of this year‘s Eighteenth-Century Research Seminar series at the University of Edinburgh. The session will present new work on politics and culture in eighteenth-century Scotland, and will feature Nicola Martin (University of Stirling) whose presentation is entitled ‘Improvement, Stadial Theory, and the Pacification of the Highlands in the mid-Eighteenth Century’, and Thomas Archambaud, (Independent) who will be speaking on’The Highland Bard and the Prime Minister: James Macpherson, Lord Bute and the politics of Scottish patronage in the age of Enlightenment’.
All welcome. Seminars are held at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, University of Edinburgh, from 4:30-6pm, and are followed by a drinks reception.
You can also follow the series on its twitter account @ECRS_Edinburgh. We’ll be live-tweeting the papers from that handle.
