Abstract/Description

This presentation will include research and analysis of the formation of the United Kingdom and the role of Scottish economics, politics, and nationalism in the push for independence. Points of interest in this research include: the Darien Scheme, the Acts of Union of 1707, Jacobite Risings of 1715 and 1745, the rise of the Scottish National Party, and the Independence Referendum. Understanding these various events and the connection to categories listed above (economics, politics, nationalism) will illustrate whether or not the events of the past have similar underlying notions to much more modern events.
