Free Lunchtime 'Masterclass' Talks: The politics of nationalism in Europe after the Scottish referendum

Free Lunchtime 'Masterclass' Talks: The politics of nationalism in Europe after the Scottish referendum

Date: Friday 24 October 2014
Time: 12.10 - 13.00
Venue: Room 201, John McIntyre Building, University of Glasgow
Speaker: Professor Brian Girvin

Nationalism is on the rise again in Europe. Nationalist and Populist movements have tapped into widespread discontent with the political establishment and the status quo in many states. The Scottish referendum is but one expression of this wider instability (Catalonia is another). The talk will place the Scottish outcome in a broader European context and asks what the future holds not only for nationalism but for the European Union and the established state system.

The tomb was lost in the turmoil of the post-Reformation era, but a grave and fragments of carved and gilded stone, believed to be those of the vanished tomb, were found in 1818 and given to The Hunterian and to the National Museums of Scotland.
