Scottish Studies


The Guelph Series in Scottish Studies is the Centre for Scottish Studies flagship book-publication venture.  The first volume in this series of peer-reviewed essay collections was published in 2009.  Volumes in the series are focused on a particular theme in Scottish historical or cultural studies and may be purchased through the Centre for Scottish Studies.

The Centre for Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph is the oldest and most eminent academic unit in North America to carry out research, graduate training and teaching on Scottish history and Scottish culture, with special emphasis on the history of the Scottish Canadian community. Our Graduate Program was founded in 1968 and we are proud to host the  Scottish Studies Colloquium, a public day conference held twice each year for the presentation of current research by graduate students and scholars from Scotland, Canada and elsewhere around the world.

We began publishing Scottish Tradition in 1971, which was relaunched as the International Review of Scottish Studies in 2003.  The IRSS is a fully peer-reviewed academic journal and has been publishing as an open access journal since 2006.

In 2004, the Scottish Studies Foundation endowed the position of Chair of Scottish Studies. This was a singular achievement of fundraising and generosity by the Scottish Canadian community which gave us a new lease of life. Both our past and our present international reputation give us pride and we look forward to the many exciting things the future may have in store!
