The Program
We will visit Edinburgh and Glasgow and take a tour of Loch Ness and some of the Highlands from Glasgow, considering as we do Scottish and British history and character as famous Scottish writers and the incorrigible Dr. Johnson wrote them.  As we consider the majesty of Edinburgh, the grittiness of Glasgow, and the stark beauty of the Scottish countryside, all encompassing centuries of brutal history, we will examine elements that built the United Kingdom before and after the union of 1707.  The major texts of this course are the accounts of Samuel Johnson and James Boswell of their tour together from Edinburgh through “the Hebrides” in 1773.  We will also look at ideas of Scottishness and Englishness as they are embodied in the 19th-century work by Robert Louis Stevenson, “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” as well as in the contemporary author, Alexander McCall Smith’s The Sunday Philosophy Club.  Both of these are very much products of Edinburgh.  Discussions of texts and experiences will take place in cafes and hotel conference rooms in the evenings.
