In a landmark series of seminars running from September 2012 to May 2013 the Centre for Scottish and Celtic Studies will offer a unique perspective on how the “voice of the people” has been heard in Scotland since medieval times. Historians, political commentators and literary scholars will consider the role that ordinary Scots played in some of the most significant events over the past seven hundred years, and whether their views and opinions were taken into account.

The University of Glasgow has also linked up with the Scotsman newspaper which will publish an abridged version of each talk on the day of delivery.

The seminars are free and open to all.
