Event description

Description

Scotland has a proud history of protest, exploration and innovation. The country’s past is a key part of its cultural, political and economic identity. History is big business, but in recent years less appealing aspects of the Scotland’s past, including its role in slavery and empire, have started to be more widely recognised.

Empire II – Scotland the Brand invites a panel of historians, writers and activists to kick off a discussion about how the country should approach less appealing aspects of its history. Should we leave well alone or square up to our ancestors? Does Scotland’s role in Empire show its citizens in a bad light, or does it shed light on economic exploitation that has valuable lessons for people today? Come along and join in the conversation.
