Scottish Privy Council Project, 1692-1708: Workshop

Laura Doak's picture

The Scottish Privy Council Project is funded by the Leverhulme Trust and based between the Universities of Stirling and Dundee. We are creating an open-access, digital edition of the Scottish Privy Council registers from between 1692 and 1708 - which have never been published or studied in detail before. 

Our second project workshop will take place on 3 November at the University of Dundee. Showcasing our research team’s ongoing work, papers will cover a wide range of topics, including: ‘improvement’ and the environment; sedition and ‘fake news’; popular protest; ‘the scourge of ungodliness’ and the Scottish Privy Council’s tempestuous relationship with the English Royal Navy. We are also excited to welcome several guest speakers, including Dr Amy Blakeway (University of St Andrews). This is a hybrid event and is open to all.

If you would like to attend (either in person or online) please email Laura Doak ( to register, or for further information. See the full workshop programme and find out more about our project on our website:
