Future of Early Modern Scottish Studies

George Jamesone, Self-Portrait (c.1642), National Galleries of Scotland.

It’s now only a few months until the Future of Early Modern Scottish Studies conference, which will be held at the University of St Andrews, 13-14 January 2017.  As one of the co-organisers, I’m immensely pleased with the responses we’ve had to our call for papers.  At present we have speakers from both sides of the Atlantic, including everyone from graduate students to professors, and topics ranging from escaped slaves to the paintings of George Jamesone. While the call for papers has now ended, registration will open very soon and I’d strongly encourage anyone with an interest in early modern Scotland to come along for what promises to be a fantastic, invigorating two days of discussion.

For more information about the conference see the website here or tweet to @emscots.
