Georgian Glasgow

Principal Investigator: Professor Murray Pittock, University of Glasgow

Collaborating Institution: Glasgow Life (Dr. Ellen McAdam)

This project examines the history of Glasgow in the Georgian era (1700-1840) via literature, art, and objects from the period. The project deals with key themes and authors alongside new theories of cultural memory. In 2014 a major exhibition (‘How Glasgow Flourished – 1700-1840′) will take place in Kelvingrove Museum. The project is working with the curators – gaining sources and research to help inform the objects that will be displayed.

There is no registration fee and lunch will be provided, as well as a tour of the new exhibition on Georgian Glasgow hosted by Glasgow Life:
