The Images of Ireland and Scotland in William Camden\'s Britannia

Student: Irina Iakovleva

Supervisor: Feliks Levin

Faculty: School of Arts and Humanities

Educational Programme: History (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2021

In this paper I am going to analyze the images of Scotland and Ireland in Camden’s Britannia as there is little written on non-English composites in relation to Camden’s works and I aim to connect it to broader discussions of antiquarian knowledge and power hierarchies among British composites. By employing critical discourse analysis I see how Camden constructed pasts of Scotland and Ireland within British framework and how his work was influenced by traditional representations of these composites and social practices.
