Weekly Digest 24 March 2017

Welcome to the Scottish History Network Digest!

Our new blog series highlighting “What I do in Scottish History” features Victoria Hodgson this week. Victoria discusses her research interests and why being a scholar of ‘medieval monasticism’ is more nuanced than just studying religion. 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 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.
