dc.description.abstractThis podcast explores the difficulty of making a cohesive story out of Scottish devolution, and the competing narratives and perspectives brought to the question by writers, historians, parliamentarians and constitutional experts. It emerges from a research workshop held at the University of Stirling to examine the idea of ‘cultural devolution’ – the notion that writers and artists made Holyrood possible – and revisits a side of the story which is less about taxation powers than the management of national feeling. With thanks to BBC Scotland, the Scottish Political Archive, Billy Kay and Stuart Platt for use of archival audio. Other recordings from ‘Narrating Scottish Devolution’ research workshops held at the University of Stirling, supported by a British Academy/Leverhulme Small Research Grant. Recording, editing and production assistance from Peter Geoghegan, with support from the Stirling Centre for Scottish Studies.en_GB
