Facets of Scottish Identity

(edited by Izabela Szymańska and Aniela Korzeniowska)

ISBN 978-83-7507-235-8

Format B5, s. 218, diagramy, bibliografie, indeks nazwisk

With globalisation and multiculturalism increasingly influencing modern societies, the issue of identity is gaining new dimensions, and academic research on identity is gaining new momentum. The topic of identity finds its place in a vast array of academic disciplines, including psychology, sociology, ethnology and cultural anthropology, history and political studies, linguistics, literary and cultural studies. The problem of searching for and expressing the identity of individuals and nations surfaces in social and political life, including education, as well as in literature, architecture and the arts.

This volume offers a variety of analyses and views concerning Scottish identity. Scotland may be considered one of the most vivid examples of the issue of identity inspiring academic reflection and research from diverse perspectives due to the country's intricate political, social, linguistic and literary history, as well as to its troubled relationships with England and its complex relationships with Europe.
