The Center for British Studies and English Department at Berkeley are
hosting a conference on 'Scottish Romanticism and World Literatures' from
7-10 September 2006, jointly organized by Ian Duncan and Murray Pittock.
Among the areas we are planning to address in the main conference sessions
are the impact of Scottish Romanticism on European literatures, the
Anglophone British Empire and the United States; continuities between
Scottish Enlightenment and Romanticism; relations between Scotland and
Ireland, and between Scottish and English Romanticisms; "literature" and
the disciplines of the natural and human sciences; the social environments
of periodical culture,book production and the literary market; tradition
and genre; and sessions on major authors.

Proposals for 25-minute papers are now invited and should take the form of
a title and 100-word abstract to be sent to Murray Pittock
<> and/or Ian Duncan <> by 15
December 2005. Proposals for round tables on particular issues or work in
progress seminars are also welcome.
