Welcome to the STAR Project
The STAR (Scotland's Transatlantic Relations) Project was set up in 2002 with a grant from the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland. It was convened by Susan Manning, former Grierson Professor of English Literature and Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Edinburgh. STAR's mission is to provide a focus for international circumatlantic research with a Scottish dimension. Our seminars, conferences, publication ventures, and other collaborations support exchange and discussion. Further details about forthcoming events, seminars and lectures can be found on this website along with various links and resources. We welcome inquiries, contributions, and suggestions from new and established members of the network.
