This course offers fresh ways of interpreting one of the landmarks of Scottish history. It avoids conventional political and economic approaches to the Highland Clearances, focussing instead upon ideologies: the intellectual, cultural and religious systems of belief which shaped and drove the process of change in the Scottish Highlands between 1745 and 1886.
