The Stirling Centre for Scottish Studies was established in 1996 under Emeritus Professor Rory Watson of the Division of Literature and Languages. The SCSS aims to promote research, publication and postgraduate recruitment in Scottish Studies, arising from established strengths and academic interests in Stirling within and especially across the boundaries of literature, art, music, history, media, philosophy, politics, social issues and cultural theory.
The Centre aims to make interdisciplinary contacts and developments within the University and also outwith Stirling in the field of Scottish Studies. It will pursue specifically cross-disciplinary themes or projects, each over a set period of time, leading to a conference, a symposium, and/or publication at the end of that period of study. To that end, the Centre welcomes approaches from projects on all Scottish themes.
