ENG 216 - Scottish Literature & Culture
Scottish Literature and Culture
Pre-req: LAC student with T1A, T1LT, T1H or T1SS course or GER student

An overview of the literature of Scotland, covering the period roughly 1700 to the present, and with particular emphasis on the ways in which Scottish writers have articulated ideas concerning the struggle of a minority culture against a dominant one, of the structure and dynamics of national and ethnic identity, and of the endless interplay between diverse cultures that characterizes the modern world. Writers may include those in the British canon writing in English and Scots, such as Tobias Smollett, Robert Burns, Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Hugh MacDiarmid; those writing in Gaelic, such as Alasdair MacMhaighstir Alasdair, Mairi Nic A'Phearsain, and Iain MacGhillEathain; and contemporaries, such as Jackie Kay, Irvine Welsh, and Bashabi Fraser.
