Gender in Scottish History Since 1700

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines ways in which Scots have constructed their national identities in relation to the ‘other’, not just the English in politics and battle, but also in-migrants and indigenous populations in parts of the Empire colonised by Scots. It considers the gendered nature of these encounters and asks how women and men constructed their identities based on their gendered experiences in the fields of politics, institutions and in written and oral culture.
