MIchael Morris, Lecturer in English and Cultural History, Liverpool John Moores

This paper revolves around the cultural history of the Atlantic world, particularly in the long eighteenth century. It is concerned with recovering the memory of Atlantic slavery in a Scottish context, and it considers the implications of this recovery for contemporary debates on Scottish (and British) identity in a post-referendum context. It also looks to engage with the concept of the ‘archipelago’, bringing together theories around Caribbean creolization with the Four Nations approach which re-considers ‘the British Isles’ as an ‘Atlantic Archipelago’.
