From 2-5 July 2014, the University of Glasgow is hosting the first World Congress of
Scottish Literatures in the College of Arts, with the involvement of the Association
for Scottish Literary Studies and other bodies. The conference will be organized
under four main themes: Authors, Theorizing Scottish literature, Gaelic, Mediaeval,
Musical and Artistic Scotland and Scotland in global culture and context. Colleagues
in the US, Europe, UK and Australia have already agreed to organize panels, and the
congress steering group, together with a wider internationally based committee, are
planning regular updates to interested colleagues. If you would like to be on our
mailing list, please contact Rhona Brown

A Call for Papers will be issued in
due course. The conference will be held in an exciting month in Glasgow, with the
Commonwealth Games and the major Georgian Glasgow exhibition both taking place in
July. We plan to work closely with our colleagues in the city and its galleries and
museums to make this a truly exciting experience for our delegates.
