In this webinar Dr Iain MacKinnon of Coventry University and Dr Andrew Mackillop of the University of Glasgow will be discussing their ground-breaking research report titled ‘Plantation Slavery and Landownership in the West Highlands and Islands: Legacies and Lessons’. The research has been published by Community Land Scotland as the first in our new discussion paper series on ‘Land and the Common Good’. The webinar will be chaired by Peter Peacock and will also include contributions from Dr Jennifer Melville, leader of the National Trust for Scotland’s ‘Facing Our Past’ project and Dr Calum MacLeod, Community Land Scotland’s policy director. Following the contributions from our speakers there will be a Question and Answer session to discuss the implications of the research and its wider contemporary relevance.
