Abstracts should be no longer than 200 words, and should be sent by Friday, 30 January to both Imogen Gibbon (igibbon@nationalgalleries.org) and Matthew McDowell (matthew.mcdowell@ed.ac.uk). Any queries should also be sent to Imogen or Matthew.

As BSSH Scotland does not typically receive institutional support for its events, a £15 fee will be charged by the conference organisers for attendance.

Keep your eyes open for the call for papers for The Scottish Winter, a companion conference being held in Perth on 6 December 2017!

Please forward this to any of your colleagues and postgraduate students who may find this of interest.
