HST 268 - (162) The Making of Modern Scotland

Course Units: 1
(Not offered this Academic Year) Kilts, haggis, heather, and Highlands: all things that come to mind when we think of Scotland. Yet few of us probably appreciate just how much the people of that rugged country contributed to modern history: radical Protestantism and the King James Bible, Highland regiments and Enlightenment thinkers, links golf and Robbie Burns, the steam engine (James Watt) and the “invisible hand” (Adam Smith), Trainspotting (Irvine Welsh) and the Edinburgh Arts Festival. This course studies Scotland’s history and its people’s search for a modern identity. CC: LCC
