The student-led Older Scots Reading Group would like to invite all students and staff with an interest in engaging with Older Scots literature, linguistics, history and culture to our next meeting, where we will be in conversation with Dr Janet Hadley Williams (Honorary Lecturer of English & Drama at the School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics at the Australian National University).
The meeting will take place on Wednesday 23 November at 9 a.m. and it will be a HYBRID meeting, both in-person (location to be confirmed) and online via zoom.
Dr Hadley Williams will join us to discuss issues related to editing. Her recently-curated collection of Priscilla Bawcutt’s essays Textual and Bibliographical Studies in Older Scots Literature: Selected Essays of Priscilla Bawcutt offers the chance to debate both Priscilla Bawcutt’s reflections and Hadley Williams's own work on important publications such as, among others, her edition of Sir David Lyndsay’s poetry.
The student-led Older Scots Reading Group was established in 2021 to give students a platform to discuss Older Scots-related texts. Our informal and friendly discussions last around 90 minutes and take place monthly in a hybrid format (in-person at the University of Glasgow with the option to join in via Zoom). Locations and dates are confirmed and emailed to participants prior to the event.
If you would like to join us please email either Claire Elder at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ruggero Bianchin at email@example.com for more information, we’d love to have you!
