About us

About The Centre for Scottish Culture at the University of Dundee

The Centre for Scottish Culture brings together members of the School of Humanities, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD), and other departments at the University of Dundee with interests in the literature, culture and history of Scotland and its people.

The Centre helps facilitate creative and academic collaboration among our staff, students, and the wider community, and showcases our innovative work on popular culture, including film, comics and graphic novels, as well as poetry, theatre and fiction.

We organize and host international conferences and symposia, exhibitions, festivals, research seminars, and a wide array of academic and creative projects.

Many of our activities consider the role of Scottish culture in a global context, and we would particularly welcome new partnerships across the world. Read more about our partnerships. Follow us on Twitter and the Facebook page.

University of Dundee & the City of Dundee

In 2018, the City of Discovery proudly welcomes the arrival of the Scottish branch of the world-renowned V&A Museum, and we were shortlisted for the prestigious UK City of Culture 2017 award.

Unique to Dundee is Scotland’s only repertory company, Dundee Rep Theatre. Also situated on the edge of our campus is Dundee Contemporary Arts, a world-class centre for the development and exhibition of contemporary art and culture, with whom we collaborate on film projects and screenings.

In conjunction with the School of Humanities, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Dundee, cited as one of the top art schools in the UK, offers a number of interdisciplinary postgraduate degree courses in art, media, design and the humanities.
