Scottish Ethnology - MScR


Course Description

Training and support

Research and field collection in Scottish Ethnology encompasses the areas of oral narrative, song and instrumental music, material culture, social organisation, custom and belief, and place names.

Both oral and written sources are emphasised and Scotland offers excellent opportunities for fieldwork in Scots and Gaelic.

We use a combination of traditional and innovative methods to impart research training.

You will be encouraged to make direct contact with original sources and to gain hands-on experience, whether in reading medieval manuscripts or in handling electronically stored data.

Research training and expert research supervision are provided.

Facilities

The School of Scottish Studies Archives includes over 12,000 hours of sound recordings, an extensive photographic and video collection, manuscripts, linguistic and place-name surveys, and donated collections such as:

  • the John Levy Archive of religious music
  • the Burton-Manning Collection of Appalachian oral tradition
  • the Will Forret and Gus MacDonald Collections of Scottish music
  • the Edgar Ashton Folk Revival Collection
