What do J. M. Barrie, William Drummond and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle have in common?
Well, aside from being renowned writers, they are all alumni of the University of Edinburgh.
Doyle studied at the university’s Medical School in the 1870s-1880s. Around the same time, Barrie studied Literature there. And Drummond graduated from the university all the way back in 1605.
Given this sterling pedigree, it can come as no surprise that Edinburgh offers endless inspiration for those who chose to pursue their passion for letters and language at the University’s School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures.
And that passion – specifically for Barrie, Drummond and Doyle – is the subject of a new video created by Spectrecom Films on behalf of the university.
Following three students around the city as they explain their love for their chosen literary idol, the video conveys the sense of rich inspiration they’re able to draw from both their surroundings and studying at the school itself.
This is the third video production project produced by Spectrecom Films on behalf of Edinburgh’s School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures, which delivers over 50% of programmes in the university’s College of Humanities and Social Science.
The school is also home to what happens to be the oldest English Literature department in the world; Edinburgh first began offering courses on ‘rhetoric and belles lettres’ nearly 250 years ago.
Spectrecom Films is one of the UK’s leading video production companies for higher education film and video content. Take a look at our universities page to find out more.
