Weekly Digest 24 February 2017

Welcome to the Scottish History Network Digest!
Last week officially marked our first birthday. What an incredible first year. We’re continuing to celebrate this week by working to expand the network across the Atlantic.  We are actively searching for exhibitions, events, and all things #ScotHist related in North America. #ScotHistorians of the world unite!
We’re delighted at the response we’ve received about our new blog series we launched last week. The blog series highlights “What I do in Scottish History.”  Dr. Annie Tindley, Newcastle University, kicked off our first post by reflecting on teaching and researching Scottish History in an English institution. You can read her post here.  This week Fiona Foster, University of Mississippi, shared some thoughts on whether Scotland’s First World War effort was distinctly “Scottish.” You can read her post here.
The blog series aims to celebrate the varied work that is being undertaken all around the world that relates to Scottish History. We’d we’d love to get as many perspectives as possible so please think about writing a post for us. Further information and contact details are on our webpage.
As always in the digest, we’ve tried to include as much information as possible about news, events and opportunities relating to Scottish history. If we have missed anything, or you have something you’d like us to include in the future, please get in touch at scottishhistorynetwork@gmail.com, on Twitter @ScotHistNetwork or via our Facebook page.
