Scottish Readers Remember: Reading in Scotland in the Twentieth Century

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

Scottish Readers Remember aims to record the reading experiences of Scots in the twentieth century. Reading once represented a large gap in our knowledge of social history, particularly reading as a factor in working-class experience. The gap has been narrowed for the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by Professor Jonathan Rose and others drawing on a wealth of memoirs, autobiographies and diaries. A quantitative balance has been provided by the use of library and other records such as in the RGU-based study of Edzell Public Library.
