The Scottish Revival Network

  The Scottish Revival Network will initiate conversations and debates on the aims, scope, influences and international connections of the Scottish Revival in literature and culture from the 1880s to the 1950s. It will seek to make explicit the cultural, intellectual and political links between the fin-de-siècle Scottish Revival and the Scottish renaissance movement of the early decades of the twentieth century, otherwise known as the Scottish literary revival, and so propose a ‘long’ Scottish Revival. The network will promote analysis and greater understanding of the Scottish Revival in national terms while also initiating comparative examination of the Scottish Revival and other revivals occurring internationally in the same period. While its primary focus will be on literature, the network will facilitate discussion as to the links between literature and other cultural forms during the Scottish Revival. The foremost international academics will contribute their expertise to a contemporary reassessment of this important and exciting period in Scottish cultural life.
