Scottish Homecomings from the 17th Century to the Present
by Mario Varricchio (Editor) - Find out more about the author

Return migration is a largely neglected area of historical research in all countries, including Scotland. The contributors to this volume shed light on the experience of Scottish emigrants who decided to head back home, through five centuries of Scottish history, by exploiting analytical tools from history, anthropology, sociology and literature. Drawing on diverse sources, including ‘traditional’ historical sources as well as literary and ‘lived experience’ documents, this collection of essays opens up new avenues of research and features groundbreaking work.

Mario Varricchio has a PhD in English Studies from the University of Padua (Italy) and a PhD in History from the University of Edinburgh. He is currently a lecturer in English at the University of Padua and has published in a number of journals, mainly in oral history.
