In 2014, the Scottish voted on a referendum concerning their independence. The majority voted ”no” – thus Scotland remains a part of Great Britain. But even before the Scottish voted, they were perceived as their own people with their own nation. The Welsh, incidentally, are a people just like the Scottish, but seem to have been largely ignored. This course aims to change that perception. Looking at their rich mythological and cultural tradition, considering filmic and literary representations, students will gain a deeper insight into this fascinating country and culture – which is not only about leeks.
