Scotland’s Transnational Heritage

By (editors) Emma Bond and Michael Morris

Scotland’s Transnational Heritage draws on the expertise of academics, museum professionals and creative practitioners working together to re-think the way that the transnational histories of Scotland are being told today. The contributors emphasise Scotland’s role in networks of colonialism and outline new historical examples of how Scottish trades and institutions benefited from empire and slavery, providing examples of contemporary case studies and innovative practices in storytelling that engage and inform. The book will inspire heritage and museum staff and academics to create new approaches to these histories, both in Scotland and beyond. Within the current context of calls to decolonise both the museum and the academy, this is a timely snapshot of the exciting and diverse work taking place in the field in Scotland today.
