Georgian Glasgow


Principal Investigator: Professor Murray Pittock (University of Glasgow)
Collaborators: Dr. Ellen McAdam, Glasgow Life
Duration: From 2012 to 2015

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.
