IRC Symposium 2016

Intercultural Scotland: Challenges and Opportunities

19 May 2016

More than 60 participants attended the IRC's first symposium on 19 May 2016, considering challenges and opportunities faced by an increasingly multi- and intercultural Scotland.

Spurred on by the campaigns leading up to the 2014 independence referendum, there have been several tropes of a continuing debate about what, where and who Scotland was, is, and should become. One strong trope is the idea of Scotland as a trans-/intercultural society capable of an inclusive form of nationalism encompassing the "new Scots" within a way of national identity that is rooted in a shared culture rather than civic codes or descent. The symposium critically examined that trope and its wider implications, with particular focus on key areas of research at the IRC: cultural heritage, migration and language, narrative & memory, socio-cultural policy, sustainable development, and tourism management.
