‘Brither Scots Shoulder tae Shoulder’: An Evolutionary Perspective on Scottish Associationalism

Show Summary Details

Preview

The 1860s witnessed an increase in the number of Scottish clubs and societies, as well as a surge in the popularity of events such as Highland Games, all over the world, bringing New Zealand in line with developments in the wider Scottish Diaspora. These convergencies notwithstanding, Scottish associationalism was not uniform across the Diaspora; the types of Scottish associations, their structures and objectives varied between the Scots’ places of settlement. With this important point in mind, this chapter explores the evolution of Scottish associational life in New Zealand.

Keywords: Scottish clubs; Scottish societies; associations; Scottish Diaspora; associational life
