200 word proposals are invited on the theme: Walter Scott: Sheriff and Outlaw. The conference welcomes proposals from the open range of Scott studies and beyond, as we take the author into new cultural and critical territory. We particularly welcome arguments about the many ways in which Scott broke boundaries in his time, and the ways in which his work has redirected literature and culture in the years since his death.
Because this conference is all about breaking the rules, we also welcome proposals focused on other aspects of Scott.
Topics might include: Scott as innovative poet, novelist, letter writer, president of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, agricultural improver, Romanticist, Scot, traveler, historian, friend, medievalist, anthropologist, etc.; Scott’s contribution to ideas of landscape, architecture, or travel; his contribution to ideas of Europe and America (South, West), etc. All critical and theoretical approaches are welcome.
