Course Description:
This course aims to introduce students to eighteenth- and nineteenth century Scottish history and culture through the exploration of landscapes and cityscapes, including the Highlands and the city of Edinburgh. Students will explore Scottish political history coupled with movement theory to emphasize the experiential nature of travel. Students will visit significant historical sites like Edinburgh Castle and view artifacts at the National Museum of Scotland. We will explore the importance of recreation and leisure in Scottish culture and our own kinesthetic experience of hiking Arthur's Seat, an iconic hike offering great views of Edinburgh. Students will also visit Culloden Moor, Clava Cairns, and Castle Urquhart at Loch Ness, as well as the Highland mountains of Glencoe.
