Summer 2018: Wyoming in Scotland

Students took a tour in time from 1750-2050. Back to the Future they went, beginning with the premier storyteller of his time, Walter Scott, at his “flibbertigibbet of a house,” Abbotsford. There are stories of coalmines and salt pans, technological innovation and invention, tales of forests lost and regrown. This class traveled from crofter’s field to church crypt, from river path to mountain top to ask, “What happened here?” And how is this political and physical landscape in flux? The course explored the cultural and environmental histories and futures of Scotland, with emphasis on contemporary energy and sustainable systems from the community to the national scale.
