Academic Overview
The nature of this course will be to investigate how Scotland's crofting tradition, literary landscape, and place in the United Kingdom influence the Scottish identity and national consciousness.  We will study how the past literary lights of Scotland, especially Sir Walter Scott, Robert Burns, and Robert Louis Stevenson, illuminate both Edinburgh as a city and the present literary landscape; furthermore, we will examine how contemporary Scottish writers cultivate a thriving literary landscape of their own, independent from the past tradition.  We will travel to Inverness, Portree on the Isle of Skye, Glasgow, and Edinburgh.
