See the program here.


The Scottish Studies International series has just released a new book (vol. 41), edited by three members of the English Department in Germersheim: Klaus Peter Müller, Ilka Schwittlinsky and Ron Walker, Inspiring Views from "a' the airts" on Scottish Literatures, Art & Cinema. The First World Congress of Scottish Literatures in Glasgow 2014, Frankfurt: Lang 2017. The book raises significant questions, such as where do Scottish literatures, art, and cinema stand today? What and how do Scottish Studies investigate? Creative writers and scholars give answers to these questions and address vital concerns in Scottish, British, and European history from the Union debate and the Enlightenment to Brexit, ethnic questions, and Scottish film. They present new insights on James Macpherson, Robert Burns, John Galt, J. M. Barrie, Walter Scott, James Robertson, war poetry, new Scottish writing, and nature writing. The contributions highlight old and new networking and media as well as the persistent influences of the past on the present, analyzing a wide range of texts, media and art forms with approaches from literary, cultural, media, theatre, history, political, and philosophical studies.
