My book Beyond Identity: New Horizons in Modern Scottish Poetry was published in Amsterdam at Rodopi in 2009. It contains in-depth interviews with some of Scotland’s foremost poets including Edwin Morgan, Tom Leonard and Kathleen Jamie, and is complete with headnotes and bibliographies. It provides an extensive introduction to some of the main educational, linguistic, political and other concerns that define life in modern Scotland.
I ran a Research Forum workshop at our department between 2004 and 2009. A volume that is the record of the activities of the Forum’s five years was published as part of the Arts Faculty journal series; its full text can be accessed here.
In 2010 one of our visiting professors, Colin Swatridge published a book called A Country Full of Aliens, or, a Briton in Hungary, based on his experience. A Hungarian translation of his book was made at our department under my supervision and was published in Budapest at Corvina in 2011.
