The Scottish Studies Foundation and the Scottish Studies Program at the University of Guelph invites proposals for individual papers to be presented at the annual fall colloquium held at the University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, on 13 October 2001.
The theme for this year's colloquium is 'Regulating Culture and Society in Scotland.' Papers on all aspects of social, political, economic, religious, legal and domestic regulation within Scotland are welcome. The Scottish Studies Program at the University of Guelph is an 'interdepartmental group established to co-ordinate graduate studies in the history, literature and culture of Scotland and Scottish settlements in Canada.' As such, we strongly encourage participation from both graduate students and faculty members from across Canada, the United States and the rest of the world. Unfortunately, we are unable to subsidize any costs incurred traveling to the colloquium.
At this year's colloquium, the Scottish Studies Foundation will be presenting the Frank Watson Prize in Scottish History honouring the 'best book, monograph, dissertation or edited set of papers on Scottish history published between 1999-2000.' As well, the Foundation will acknowledge and award the best paper presented by a graduate student.
Proposals are due by 15 August 2001, should be no longer than one page in length and be accompanied by a short vita. Please send proposals to:
