Interdepartmental Programs

     The Interdepartmental Group in Scottish Studies was established to co-ordinate graduate studies in the history, literature and culture of Scotland and of Scottish settlements in Canada. Students interested in working in this field register in the department dealing with the discipline in which their particular interest lies. Special emphasis is, at the present time, laid on Scottish history from the 14th to the early 20th century, and Scottish and Scottish-Canadian literature. Research areas include:
  • medieval and early modern history;
  • the literary tradition in the 19th and 20th centuries;
  • social history of the 18th to early 20th century;
  • Scottish-Canadian and migrant literature;
  • the origins of migrations;
  • gender studies;
  • crime.

     The core of the program is focused on research and the writing of a thesis. At the present time a PhD program is offered only in the Department of History, which is part of the Tri-University PhD Program in History. Please see the separate listing in this calendar for details.
     Each year the program hosts a spring and a fall Scottish Studies Colloquium at which students are encouraged to present papers. Students are also encouraged to participate in the presentation of papers and workshops for the general public.
     The library contains one of the largest collections of Scottish material outside Scotland, including both printed materials on Scottish and Scottish-Canadian topics and a large amount of manuscript source material in the form of letters and business documents. Collections include the Ewen Graham collection of correspondences amounting to some 12,000 letters (1750-1840); Scottish chapbooks; Covenanting, Jacobite and Disruption pamphlets; the Campbell of Monzie papers; the letters of the Campbells of Kildonan; a collection of first editions from the Foulis Press; 19th- and 20th-century novels; and a number of collections of papers donated by families in the Guelph area.
