Description

Chapter in Inspiring Views from ‘A the Airts’ on Scottish Literatures, Art and Cinema: The First World Congress of Scottish Literatures in Glasgow 2014, edited by Klaus Peter Müller, Ilka Schwittlinsky and Ron Walker.

Abstract: Cosmopolitanism characterized the early years of post-devolution Scottish literature and Scottish literary studies. Scottish literature has subsequently become much more local in production and consumption and, rather than view this movement with alarm, Scottish Studies should embrace this literature’s ex-centricity and the advantages of a largely self-produced and self-consumed literature whose merit can be measured in local impact rather than its apolitical place in the neo-liberal world republic of letters and global literary marketplace.
