|Summary||In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in traditional drama. The Nordic countries have embarked on a large-scale project to archive and interpret extant traditions, an initiative which includes Orkney and Shetland. A project with similar aims is underway in Ireland, whilst at the University of Sheffield the National Centre for English Cultural Tradition has established itself as the leading English centre for research into the subject.
This course provides the opportunity to examine the traditional drama of Scotland in its wider context. We have significant holdings of audio and visual material on the seasonal folk drama 'Galoshins', collected, archived and interpreted over many years by academic staff, notably Dr Emily Lyle.
