The STAR (Scotland's Transatlantic Relations) Project is collaborating with Symbiosis, a journal of Anglo-American literary relations, to hold the Fourth Symbiosis Conference, “Across the Great Divide,” in Edinburgh from July 18-21, 2003. The conference invites papers on all aspects of literary, theoretical, and material transatlantic cultural exchange between the British Isles and the Americas; panel proposals are also welcomed. This meeting will coincide with a major exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland that will investigate the impact of Scottish emigration to North America on both the emigrants and the indigenous people they encountered. The conference events will take place in conjunction with both the Museum of Scotland and the National Library of Scotland. Proposals of approximately 300 words and a brief CV should be submitted by February 28, 2003 to the contact below. Please visit the STAR website for updated information.
