54 and social change

54 and social change where the relationship between man and machine, be it car or computer, seems to be in a state of constant flux. Nature and the environment also represent potential threats to the very existence of humanity, through natural or man-made disasters. The awesome power of nature ultimately places it beyond man’s control. The result is a potentially posthuman world, made up of adaptations and mutations, of disintegration and the disappearance of humanity or of cultures, or the birth of a new type of society or species. Papers are invited from a wide range of approaches and angles which may include the following themes: Scottish literature Travel writing in Scotland Science fiction Fantasy Political speeches Propaganda Ideology Nationalism Devolution Scottish history Ecology Ecocriticism Urbanism Cinema Theatre Painting Museography New technologies Posthuman Hybridity The deadline for submissions to this conference has passed. First World Congress of Scottish Literatures 2 – 5 July 2014, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, Scotland World Congress website From 2 - 5 July 2014, the University of Glasgow will host the first ever World Congress of Scottish Literatures in the College of Arts, with the involvement of the Association for Scottish Literary Studies, Scottish Historical Review and other bodies.

As part of the celebration of the world in Scotland and Scotland in the world in 2014, the College intends to offer a full overseas fee waiver bursary over three years to a Commonwealth student wishing to work on a PhD on any aspect of Scotland in its international context in the College of Arts. The College of Arts at Glasgow is at the heart of studying Scotland worldwide. It has an unmatched reach in research terms. Indeed, with some £8M of research income in recent years, the College leads the world in Scottish Studies research. Major projects include Leverhulme Scottish Seventeenth-Century Philosophy, the AHRC Breaking of Britain project with its ground-breaking database, AHRC Editing Robert Burns for the 21st Century, AHRC Early Scottish Cinema, AHRC Scottish Place Names, ESRC Working-class Marriage in Scotland, Digital Archive of Scots Gaelic, AHRC Burns Beyond Text, AHRC Neo-Latin in Jacobean Scotland, Historic Scotland Battlefields Inventory, Historic Scotland Strathearn and Royal Forteviot, AHRC Scottish Musical Traditions and many others. We will work closely with our colleagues in the city and its galleries and museums to make this a truly unique experience for our delegates. Colleagues in Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, New Zealand, the Czech Republic, North America, the 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. This is only the beginning. The Congress is intended to mark the launch of an International Association for the Study of Scottish Literatures, providing for the first time organized global reach for the study of the literatures of Scotland in a single organization. Everyone attending the Congress will be a founding member of the Association, and we intend to seek bids to hold successor Congresses at three year intervals worldwide.
