The symposium is sponsored by the AHRC-funded ‘Staging and Representing the Scottish Renaissance Court’ project, led by Professor Greg Walker (Regius Professor of Rhetoric and English Literature, University of Edinburgh), Professor Thomas Betteridge (Chair of Theatre, Brunel University), and Dr Eleanor Rycroft (University of Bristol) in collaboration with Historic Scotland.
In June 2013, the project was responsible for the staging in Linlithgow of the first full-length professional production of The Three Estates since the original performances in 1552 and 1554, and for the recreation of Lyndsay’s 1540 Interlude in Linlithgow Palace and Stirling Castle. The project website (http://www.stagingthescottishcourt.org/) contains more information along with film of the performances.
The full symposium programme along with links to registration can be found here.
The conference fee is £82 for the three days, or £35 for Saturday only; B&B accommodation at the venue is an additional £42 per night. In addition, a small number of full bursaries for registered postgraduate students are available. If you wish to be considered for one, please write directly, with a short description of your situation, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that registration will be open until the conference itself, but if you are booking accommodation, we ask that you do so by 30 May.
