|Title:||'We Hate the English, Except for You, Cos You're Our Pal': Identification of the 'English' in Scotland|

|Abstract:||This article explores the experiences of the largest minority group in Scotland: the English-born. To date the English in Scotland are a relatively under researched group. Our research indicates that a key experience for many English people in Scotland is that of a constant reminder of difference. This can make questions of ‘belonging' problematic. Constructions of ‘Englishness', via often routine and mundane interactions with Scottish people, were often foisted upon those perceived to be English. This has implications for how we understand ‘Englishness' and ‘Scottishness' and the development of national identities more generally; particularly for minority groups. The article also argues that for many Scots ‘the English' continue to be the key ‘other' that helps to define what it is to be ‘Scottish'.|
