The First World Congress of Scottish Literatures
Next summer, the University of Glasgow will be hosting the first World Congress of Scottish Literatures. The Congress will be held between July 2nd and 5th, 2014. Organizers are still accepting submissions on the four main congress topics: authors; theorizing Scottish literature; Gaelic, Mediaeval, Music and Artistic Scotland; and Scotland in global culture and context. The deadline for 100-word abstracts is April 30, 2013. If you are interested in participating in this historic congress, e-mail an abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org. This promises to be a very exciting event in the field of Scottish Studies. For all of the details on the congress, go to its webpage.
