Guelph Series in Scottish Studies
The Centre for Scottish Studies publishes the Guelph Series in Scottish Studies. The first volume of the series is Ties of bluid, kin, and countrie was published in September 2009 and the second volume, The Shaping of Scottish Identities was published in September 2011. Both volumes are available for purchase through the Scottish Studies office: email@example.com.
We are currently accepting chapter proposals for the third volume of the Series, Scottish Religion at Home and in the Diaspora, edited by Daniel MacLeod (University of Guelph) and Stuart Macdonald (Knox College, University of Toronto).
Religious belief has had a profound influence on Scottish history. Both within and outside of Scotland, believers from the time of St. Columba to John Knox to the modern world have aided in the development of what might be considered ‘Scottish Religion’. As we recently marked the 450th anniversary of the Scottish Reformation, it seems appropriate, then, to consider the changing face of religion in Scotland.
With this in mind, The Centre for Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph invites proposals for the third volume in the Guelph Series in Scottish Studies. This fully peer-reviewed volume will consider Scottish Religion, broadly defined. Proposals are welcome from both established and emerging scholars in a variety of academic disciplines and time periods. The editors welcome proposals on a range of subjects to do with Scottish religion, including, but not limited to: The institutional church, popular piety, the diaspora, religious violence, religious networks, gender, sport, identity, class, and minority religions.
Chapter proposals of 500 - 1000 words, along with a short CV, should be submitted by e-mail to Daniel MacLeod at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15, 2012. Authors will be notified of accepted proposals by April 15, 2012. Final papers of 5000-7000 words must be completed by August 31, 2012, after which they will be sent to referees. A fall 2013 publication date is planned.
The Shaping of Scottish Identities: Family, Nation, and the Worlds Beyond
Edited by Jodi A. Campbell, Elizabeth Ewan, and Heather Parker
In 1994, T.C. Smout pointed to the concentric loyalties which go to make up the identity of those who see themselves as Scottish. Building on the last decade of new research, The Centre for Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph would like to continue this discussion in the second volume in the Guelph Series in Scottish Studies. This collection explores the multi-faceted construction of Scottish identities from the medieval to the modern era.

Ties of bluid, kin and countrie: Scottish Associational Culture in the Diaspora
Edited by Tanja Bueltmann, Andrew Hinson, and Graeme Morton
Whether for philantrophic, religious, or social purposes migrant Scots established a vast array of clubs, societies and institutions around the world. This helped to preserve a distinctive Scottish identity within newly adopted countries of residence.

Chapter highlights include:
- Marjory Harper (Aberdeen), "Transplanted Identities"
