Scotland’s Transnational Heritage draws on the expertise of academics, museum professionals and creative practitioners working together to re-think the way that the transnational histories of Scotland are being told today. It emphasises Scotland’s role in networks of colonialism and outlines new historical examples of how Scottish trades and institutions benefitted from Empire. It gathers examples of contemporary case studies and innovative practices in storytelling that engage and inform. The book aims to inspire heritage and museum staff and academics to create new approaches to these histories, both in Scotland and beyond. Within the current context of calls to decolonise both the museum and the academy, this is a timely snapshot of the exciting and diverse work taking place in the field in Scotland today.
