English and Scottish Literature

Conference programme

The Department of English Literature at Edinburgh University is delighted to host the Twelfth International Walter Scott Conference, in the 250th year since his birth in this city.

Please note that due to the ongoing restrictions on international travel and on the use of the University buildings, this will be an online conference. Participants will send papers in the form of recorded presentations in advance of panel discussions; in the week before the conference, the programme, on this website, will link to those presentations. Panel discussion, and plenary lectures, will take place by videotelephony.
