Our latest projects and news
Walk in the Footsteps of the Freethinkers of 17th century Edinburgh with our five-episode podcast, library of banned books, and interactive map. Discover the strange and sad true story of Thomas Aikenhead, the last man to be executed for blasphemy in Britain. This digital project was funded by Publishing Scotland's Go-Digital Fund.
Think in Translation
It's only natural that different languages produce different cultures: the words we use affect the way we think and the way we live. That's why reading books in translation opens your mind, and it's one of the many reasons we've launched this project, which includes a podcast and blog posts exploring translation from a variety of angles. Commissioned by the Space and Creative Scotland.
