Dancing in the streets of Dunblane: contested identities in elite Scottish sport

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The year 2014 marks an important time for Scotland when a referendum takes place to decide on whether it should be an independent country. This is the year of Homecoming (a year-long series of events designed to attract international tourists), and the nation also hosts two of the biggest sporting events in the world (the Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup). Two years ago a number of Scottish athletes formed a part of Team GB as something of a media vortex engulfed a ‘home’ Olympic Games and promoted a popular celebration of Britishness.
