CALL FOR PAPERS
2009 marked the 250th anniversary of the birth of the Scottish poet Robert Burns. In honour of the occasion, the Scottish government, in conjunction with Visit Scotland, declared 2009 to be the year of Homecoming in Scotland. Clearly, Burns continues to dominate the image of contemporary Scotland. But, despite, or perhaps because of this popular celebrity, Burns has, until very recently, been less enthusiastically received in the academy. In Scottish and Irish Romanticism , for example, Murray Pittock maps the "erasure of Robert Burns from the literary history of the Romantic period" over the last sixty years.
