The Communities and Margins of Early Modern Scotland

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOrganising a conference


‘The Communities and Margins of Early Modern Scotland’ was organised by a group of PhD students and early career researchers based in the University of Glasgow, the University of Edinburgh, and the University of Strathclyde. Held in St. Mungo’s Museum of Religious Life and Art, it was hosted within the commercial, religious and legal hub of early modern Glasgow, situated within the precincts of the Cathedral and the remnants of the Tolbooth at Glasgow Cross. With 21 speakers travelling from as far as Canada, the conference aimed to solidify a community of scholars interested in exploring prevalent themes on conventional and marginal communities in early modern Scotland, with interests ranging from godly discipline and public relations in the kirk sessions, to treachery and piracy on Scotland’s peripheries.
