Call for Papers: Studies in Hogg and his World 


For its next issue, Studies in Hogg and his World seeks articles on works composed by a wide range of Scottish authors during the years that James Hogg was actively publishing: 1801-1835. Articles on Scottish working-class and / or women authors are especially welcome, as are those that connect the works of the Scottish author under study with those of Hogg (although this is not essential). As usual, the journal also seeks articles on the life and writings of Hogg for the upcoming issue, which is scheduled for publication in the Fall of 2023.  Studies in Hogg and his World is a peer-reviewed print journal. Therefore, all articles, pedagogical papers, and notes submitted will undergo the double-blind peer review process. Submissions should be made on or before April 30, 2023 to Dr. Holly Faith Nelson at     


About Studies in Hogg and his World     

Studies in Hogg and his World was established in 1990. Its founding editor was Dr Gillian Hughes, the eminent James Hogg scholar, author of James Hogg: A Life (Oxford University Press, 2007), and editor, co-editor, or associate editor of a great many volumes of Hogg's works for the Stirling / South Carolina Research Edition of the Collected Works of James Hogg. Dr Hughes edited twenty-one issues of Studies in Hogg in his World before handing over the editorship in 2010 to Dr Hans de Groot (1939-2019), Professor Emeritus of the University of Toronto, the editor of the Stirling / South Carolina edition of James Hogg's Highland Journeys, and author of scholarly articles and book chapters on Hogg's works. With the passing of Dr de Groot in 2019, the editorship was taken up by Dr Holly Faith Nelson, Professor and Chair of English at Trinity Western University, co-editor, with Dr. Sharon Alkerof James Hogg and the Literary Marketplace: Scottish Romanticism and the Working-Class Author (Ashgate, 2009; Routledge, 2018), and co-author, with Dr Alker, of a series of articles and book chapters on the life and works of James Hogg published over the past two decades.
