The Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities hosts an annual doctoral Research Showcase to disseminate the innovative research being undertaken by arts & humanities doctoral researchers across Scotland.

In the absence of a physical showcase in these times of limited in-person interaction, we are delighted to launch our new online Research Showcase to share the diverse, exciting and pioneering work of arts & humanities doctoral researchers in Scotland being undertaken right now. Our overarching theme for 2021 is ‘Interconnected Scotland’. 

Interconnected Scotland

Scotland and its researchers have connections with people, ideas, and communities around the world and across time. Scotland’s doctoral researchers in the arts & humanities offer a multiplicity of perspectives that can help us interpret an increasingly complex world, understand our past, understand ourselves, understand the world around us, and envision a brighter future. 

The work showcased as part of Interconnected Scotland does all these things, whether that’s connecting 18th century vitalism to 21st century responses to mask-wearing, analysing water usage in Scotland, exploring political and cultural matters through personal and generational identity, examining mental illness in 20th century female writers in New York, or the other entryways these showcases provide into discussions on culture, the environment, health, memory, history, and more.

We invite you to explore all the showcases, which can be visited on the homepage.

We have also placed the showcases into four subthemes, and you can explore the showcases within each subtheme through the links below.
