Unpacking the kists : the Scots in New Zealand by Bradley H Patterson( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A thorough and interdisciplinary work, this is a study of New Zealand's Scots migrants and their impact on an evolving settler society. The authors establish the dimensions of Scottish migration to New Zealand, the principal source areas, the migrants' demographic characteristics, and where they settled in the new land. Drawing from extended case studies, they examine how migrants adapted to their new environment and the extent of longevity in diverse areas including the economy, religion, politics, education, and folkways. They also look at the private worlds of family, neighbourhood, community, customs of everyday life and leisure pursuits, and expressions of both high and low forms of transplanted culture
The English diaspora in North America : Migration, ethnicity and association, 1730s-1950s by Tanja Bueltmann( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethnic associations were once vibrant features of societies, such as the United States and Canada, which attracted large numbers of immigrants. While the transplanted cultural lives of the Irish, Scots and continental Europeans have received much attention, the English are far less widely explored. It is assumed the English were not an ethnic community, that they lacked the alienating experiences associated with immigration and thus possessed few elements of diasporas. This deeply researched new book questions this assumption. It shows that English associations once were widespread, taking hold in colonial America, spreading to Canada and then encompassing all of the empire. Celebrating saints days, expressing pride in the monarch and national heroes, providing charity to the national poor, and forging mutual aid societies mutual, were all features of English life overseas. In fact, the English simply resembled other immigrant groups too much to be dismissed as the unproblematic, invisible immigrants

Scottish ethnicity and the making of New Zealand society, 1850 to 1930 by Tanja Bueltmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Scots accounted for around a quarter of all UK-born immigrants in New Zealand between 1861 and 1945, with businessmen, politicians, and social reformers of Scottish descent leaving a notable imprint on the country. Probing the powerful narratives of atomization and individualism that have been identified as key to understanding New Zealand's colonial period, this book contends that Scots, in fact, contributed disproportionately to the making of New Zealand society. Examining Scottish immigrant community life between 1850 and 1930, the book explores informal and formal networks, associational life and transferred cultural practices in order to capture how Scottish immigrants negotiated their ethnicity, but also how that ethnicity fed into integrated, positive social structures in New Zealand" -- Publisher's information
Clubbing together : ethnicity, civility and formal sociability in the Scottish diaspora to 1930 by Tanja Bueltmann( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emigrants carried a rich array of associations with them to the new worlds in which they settled, often 'clubbing together' along ethnic lines shortly after first footfall. Yet while a crucial element of immigrant community life, one of the richest examples, that of Scottish migrants, has received only patchy coverage. Moreover, no one has yet problematized Scottish assoctiations, such as St Andrew's societies or Burns clubs, as a series of transnational connections that were deeply rooted in the civil life of their respective communites. This book provides the first global study to capture the wider relevance of the Scots' ethnic associationalism, arguing that associations and formal sociability are critical to explaining how migrants negotiated their ethnicity in the diaspora and connected to social structures in diverse settlements. Moving beyond the traditional nineteenth-century settler dominions, the book offers a unique comparative focus by bringing together Scotland's near diaspora in England and Ireland with that in North America, Africa, the Antipodes and the Far East to assess the evolution of Scottish ethnic assoications, as well as their diverse roles as sites of both memory and civility. The book reveals that the structures offered by Scottish associations engaged directly with the local, New World contexts, developing distinct characteristics that cannot be subsumed under one simplistic label - that of a overseas 'national society'. The book promotes understanding not only of Scottish ethnicity overseas, but also of how different types of ethnic associational activism made diaspora tangible. -- Publisher's description

"The image of Scotland which we cherish in our hearts" : Burns anniversary celebrations in colonial Otago by Tanja Bueltmann( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Scottish migrants fostered a range of cultural activities in the new worlds in which they settled, thereby identifying themselves as a distinct ethnic group. Celebrations of Scotland's national bard, Robert Burns, were the one recurring theme within all sites of settlement. The iconic figure of Burns is, in fact, central to the formulation, expression and commemoration of a Scottish cultural identity around the world. The present article explores the function of Burns celebrations in colonial Otago, the Scottish heartland of New Zealand. The celebrations were a key part of the Scots' associational culture in Otago, serving as an important social occasion within the Scottish community bounds and in wider Otago society. Moreover, the celebrations were effective sites of memory, employing familiar memory narratives and practices; these framed events and provided the initial common denominator that bound Scots and non-Scots together
