About the History Scotland lectures

History Scotland's newest project is a lecture series which will travel around Scotland, giving people around the country the chance to learn more about Scotland’s history.

Since its inception all the way back in 2001, History Scotland’s mission has remained the same: to bring its readers cutting-edge historical research in an accessible, engaging format and to promote the study of Scotland’s rich and fascinating past.

We have sought to attain these goals in multiple ways, through the magazine, of course, but also via our website, our social media presence, our podcasts, our digital special guides, our writing prizes and, most recently, our standalone ‘Essays’ series. Now, however, we are delighted to reveal our biggest, most ambitious and most exciting venture yet – The History Scotland Lectures.

Developed in association with the University of Dundee Centre for Scottish Culture, The History Scotland Lectures is an ongoing series that consists of two public talks each year, free of charge and open to all, offering insights from leading experts into the latest research on a huge range of topics.

Watch a video of the first lecture: 'Who were the Jacobites and what did they want for Scotland?' a debate between Professor Murray Pittock (University of Glasgow) and Professor Christopher Whatley (University of Dundee).
