Edinburgh: An Autobiographical Walk

Through Scotland’s Capital City

presented by

Euan Hague, Ph.D.

Euan Hague, Chair of the Department of Geography at DePaul University, was born and grew up in Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city. Inhabited for over a thousand years, Edinburgh’s “New Town” was built in the 1760s, and its early suburbs in the late-19th Century. Euan will provide an illustrated historical geography of Edinburgh (known during the Enlightenment era as the ‘Athens of the North’ and, less poetically, ‘Auld Reekie’ on account of its poor air quality in the early 20th Century) that draws on his own memories and subsequent journeys back to the city.
