The Centre for Literature and Writing (CLAW) at Edinburgh Napier University is hosting the international Robert Louis Stevenson conference, 5-8 July 2017. Under the title ‘Robert Louis Stevenson: New Perspectives’, the conference will be exploring the possibilities of fresh approaches which challenge traditional approaches to Stevenson’s works. The aim of the conference is to broaden the scope of Stevenson studies beyond the well-trodden literary terrain, to consider Stevenson’s lesser known works and to invite new applications of thought and theory to every aspect of this most multifarious of writers’ work.
The full conference programme can be accessed here.
A complete list of abstracts of the papers presented can be downloaded here.
Sorry, but I’m taking a conference break. Read me back soon!
