‘Sounding Scotland’s Waters, 1800-1900: History, Literature, Science’ is a series of workshops aiming to establish interdisciplinarity between researchers working across marine, arts, & humanities. Through a series of workshops and online conversations, the project aims to help arts and humanities researchers share their archival skills and expertise in text and image analysis with marine scientists, and to help marine scientists share their expertise and knowledge of water properties, species behaviour, and marine ecosystems with arts and humanities researchers. The series will explore and establish an interdisciplinary context for understanding the cultural and scientific impacts of new sounding technologies and marine species collection and study in nineteenth-century Scotland.

Discussions will take place in-person over two, two-day workshops: in St Andrews in January 2023, and in Edinburgh/North Queensferry in May 2023. Fancy being part of the workshops? Apply by 28 October.
