CFP: World Congress of Scottish Literatures 2024

The fourth World Congress of Scottish Literatures will be hosted by the School of English at the University of Nottingham, from Wednesday 3rd to Sunday 7th July 2024.

While the fourth World Congress does not have a specific theme, our scope is transnational, and we would especially welcome papers on subjects that reflect the specific context of the Congress in Nottingham: the relationship between Scotland and England from earliest times to the present, a relationship which has had profound implications for the entire world, and which is a significant relationship in literatures in Scots, Gaelic, English, French and Latin from earliest evidence to contemporary production.

Colloquium: Neo-Latin and Transcultural Exchanges

Organised by the Society for Neo-Latin Studies (SNLS), this international colloquium brings together leading scholars to discuss their current work on Latin’s place and value in a rich variety of early modern global contexts, ranging from London to China, Poland to the Philippines, and Russia to the Levant. Talks will encompass many disciplines and genres, including drama, poetry, travel-writing, rhetoric, geography, historiography and theology. We will discuss how Latin worked as a medium within early modern transcultural exchanges, as well as its significance for questions of rhetoric, educational processes and forms of representation.

Date: September 23, 2023

Location: Online (via zoom)
