Conference Announcement: A New Platform for Scottish Renaissance Studies

A conference in honour of Professor Charles McKean‌

Sat 26th – Sun 27th Oct 2013
Perth Concert Hall Complex & the Royal George Hotel, Perth

This conference is by way of a celebration of the contribution of Professor Charles McKean to the field of Scottish Renaissance Studies, on the occasion of his retirement from the University of Dundee.

The purpose of the conference is to set a new platform for research by bringing together the last decade of Scottish Renaissance research into a coherent whole. In addition to the five  papers sessions there will be two site visits, one to the privately owned Megginch Castle on the Carse of Gowrie and the other to Huntingtower to the west of Perth, ancient paternal seat of the earls of Gowrie which Historic Scotland has recently reinterpreted.

There will also be a champagne reception and celebratory dinner on the Saturday night which it is hoped all delegates will attend.
