Date and Time


Knox College, University of Toronto


The University of Guelph Scottish Studies Spring Colloquium is on April 9th at Knox College, University of Toronto. This spring's theme: "Scots in the Atlantic World." Speakers include John Burnett from the National Museums of Scotland, who will give a talk on Burns and the Supernatural, and Dr Bruce Durie, Course Director of Genealogical Studies at Strathclyde University, with a talk on "Land, Law and Latin - the future of genealogy." Registration is $25 for Scottish Studies Foundation members or $30 for non-members. As always, lunch is included in the registration fee.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
