The Scottish Centre for Diaspora Studies and Blackwell's cordially invite you to the book launch in support of the publication of Scots in London in the Eighteenth Century, edited by Dr. Stana Nenadic, in the Studies in Eighteenth-Century Scotland series published by Bucknell University Press.

Scots in London in the Eighteemh Century is an interdisciplinary collection of essays that explores, through the experiences of individuals and groups ranging from James Boswell and his circle at one end of the social spectrum to highland folk musicians at the other, the reasons why Scottish men, women, and children made the long journey south to London and their reactions to the great metropolis once there.

This event is ticketed, but tickets are FREE. Tickets are available from the front desk at Blackwell.
