I was commissioned to write this article, as part of a special issue of SSL devoted to European and world perspectives on the possible impact of the 2014 Scottish referendum on independence on the development of the academic field of Scottish studies. My article sets the referendum against Italian political expectations and ideals, and briefly reconstructs both the popular and academic responses to the possibility of an independent Scotland in the course of 2014.

Abstract

I was commissioned to write this article, as part of a special issue of SSL devoted to European and world perspectives on the possible impact of the 2014 Scottish referendum on independence on the development of the academic field of Scottish studies. My article sets the referendum against Italian political expectations and ideals, and briefly reconstructs both the popular and academic responses to the possibility of an independent Scotland in the course of 2014. It also explores and questions a (too) close bond between contingent political agendas and the definition of an inter/national field of studies.
