History Scotland Lecture 1: Who Were The Jacobites And What Did They Want For Scotland?
Professor Murray Pittock and Professor Chris Whatley
Apex Hotel, Dundee, 24 April 2018
Established in April 2018 by the University of Dundee's Centre for Scottish Culture in collaboration with History Scotland, the world’s leading Scottish history magazine, the History Scotland Lectures are held twice yearly. They are hosted both in Dundee itself and in locations around the country. Free and open to all, the Lectures offer members of the public an opportunity to hear from leading academics and to engage with cutting-edge thinking about Scottish History.
NB: During the Q&A, it was implied that the 1701 Act of Succession was repealed by David Cameron’s government. This is incorrect; all that has changed is that British monarchs can now marry a Catholic.
