The Scottish-Irish Group
and the Scottish Centre for Diaspora Studies present an evening of debate and discussion

Monday 23 May 2011, 6.00pm, University of Edinburgh (venue tbc)

The major recent controversy over the perceived issue of sectarian problems in Scotland has stimulated much national soul-searching, media comment, both at home and abroad, and political reactions. But the voice of most of those in the universities who study this problem from an academic perspective has been little heard. This event will bring together a number of scholars from the University of Edinburgh with different views on this complex subject in an evening discussion to be chaired by the distinguished journalist and commentator, Joyce McMillan.

The members of the panel are:

Professor Thomas M Devine
, Sir William Fraser Professor of Scottish History and Palaeography and Director of the Scottish Centre of Diaspora Studies

Mr Owen Dudley Edwards
, Honorary Fellow, School of History, Classics and Archaeology

Dr John Kelly
, Lecturer in Sport and Recreation Business Management, School of Education

Dr Michael Rosie
, Senior Lecturer in Sociology, School of Social and Political Science
