Scottish Ethnology and Scottish History - 爱丁堡大学

Uncover Scotland's past and help shape its future. This programme combines two complementary approaches to the study of the Scottish nation, past and present. Ethnology is the discipline which studies the culture and traditions of developed societies and is sometimes described as being at the intersection where history and anthropology meet. While commonly offered in universities across Europe, this is the only full undergraduate programme of its kind available within the UK. Focusing on Scotland, but introducing comparative material from elsewhere, you will study the varying ways in which a modern European nation expresses itself culturally, through such forms as its customs, beliefs, social organisation, language, music and song. How do these help to create and shape identity in the modern world? How do we use and make sense of the past from within our present, and how can this understanding help us to shape our future? Working with a range of rich materials, from traditional archives to modern media and digital data, you will develop the practical and intellectual tools to help navigate and indeed influence contemporary culture and society in an increasingly globalised world. The University is one of the great centres for the study of Scottish History. We offer an unrivalled concentration of expertise in this field with courses covering the political, intellectual, economic, social and cultural history of Scotland from the medieval period to the recent past. These courses deal with the great events, movements and ideas that have defined the Scottish past, and with the individuals, communities and institutions that have shaped Scottish life. Particular emphasis is given to the history of Edinburgh, to Scotland's evolving relationship with the other parts of the British Isles, and with the significant influence of Scots across the wider world. You will benefit from the rich archival resources available not only within the University but also in the great collections based in the city, including the National Library, National Records, National Galleries and National Museums of Scotland.
