Les Matins de France Culture

Thursday 18 September 2014 05:30-08:00

France Culture, French public radio channel, relocates to Edinburgh on the day of the Referendum and broadcasts its morning show live from the Institut français.

Pro-Union or Pro-Independence, which side in Scotland’s Independence debate will win ? What will happen for the UK if Scotland decides to leave ? Marc Voinchet analyses what is at stake in this crucial vote with his guests :

- Nathalie Duclos
Senior Lecturer in British Studies at the University of Toulouse 2 - Jean Jaurès Specialist of Scottish politics. Author of L’Ecosse en quête d’indépendance? Le référendum de 2014, and Femmes, pouvoir et nation en Ecosse du XVIème siècle à nos jours

- Lorna Milne
Professor of French at the University of St Andrews.

- Emily St Dennis
Research Assistant at the ESRC-funded Scottish Centre on Constitutional Change, based at the University of Edinburgh. Specialist of public policy in Scotland.

A unique opportunity to see a French news radio show in the making from very up close, and hear French and Scottish experts commenting on the political event of the day.

Oh yes, it will be in the first hours of the morning, but fight the urge to stay in bed and head down to the Institute to participate as a member of the audience.

We will provide the coffee!
