Sco­tland in Eu­rope /​Eu­rope in Scotland

Links – Dia­lo­gues – Analogies

Edited by Aniela Ko­rze­niowska and Iza­bela Szymańska

szkoci_euroOver the cen­tu­ries the links be­tween Sco­tland and Eu­rope, not to men­tion the much wider world beyond the Eu­ro­pean con­ti­nent, have had a va­ried hi­story, with Scots emi­gra­ting to all cor­ners of the globe and ma­king a si­gni­fi­cant im­pact on the co­un­tries in which they have set­tled. At the same time, Scots at home, with their in­te­rest in the hu­ma­ni­ties and science and what lies beyond their own bor­ders have given the world a great deal in di­sco­ve­ries, le­ar­ning, cul­ture and the arts, at the same time al­ways being ready to learn, borrow from others, and take ad­van­tage of what could bro­aden their own ho­ri­zons. The Scots in cer­tain pe­riods in the past formed a very si­gni­fi­cant pre­sence out­side their own home co­untry, whe­reas in Sco­tland, edu­ca­tion, cul­ture and the arts de­ve­loped and expanded also thanks to what was in con­stant flux just over their own border as well as fur­ther afield, in Eu­rope par­ti­cu­larly. Re­la­tions be­tween the Scots and the Eu­ro­pean con­ti­nent have al­ways in­ter­woven. The latter has al­ways been a vi­sible pre­sence in Sco­tland whe­reas the Eu­ro­peans have also never been in­dif­fe­rent to the Scots. [from In­tro­duc­tion]
