Fall Colloquium 2007

On Saturday 29th September I headed to the University of Guelph, some two hours drive from my house, to attend the Fall meeting of the Scottish Studies Dept. which I learned on the day that they are now called Centre for Scottish Studies.

And the Centre for Scottish Studies now have their own merchandise

And lots of books both new and old to purchase

And the auditorium was pretty well filled for both the morning and afternoon sessions

Dr Graeme Morton did an excellent job of chairing the meeting and on the right Alan McKenzie was in attendance for the inaugrial Jill McKenzie lecture in honour of his wife who died earlier in the year. The talk was given by Professor Christopher Whatley (University of Dundee) on "The Union of 1707 on its 300th anniversary".

Everyone in attendance enjoyed the lectures and there were many questions for the presenters. Coffee, lunch and afternoon tea were all part of the $40.00 fee and bagpipes were played to greet the visitors on arrival and were enjoyed by all.
