The Irvin Department and the Department of English are co-hosting the 25th annual conference of the Eighteenth-Century Scottish Studies Society, titled "Media and Mediation in 18th-Century Scotland: Voices, Manuscripts and 'Guid Black Prent.'" The event is expected to draw scholars from the U.K., Britain, and elsewhere as well as from across the U.S. In addition to plenary addresses by Nigel Leask (University of Glasgow) and David Shields (University of South Carolina), a roundtable keynoted by Maureen McLane (New York University), and a variety of other papers, a new library exhibition will showcase items from the G. Ross Roy Collection (Robert Burns & Scottish Poetry), the James W. Oliver Collection (David Hume), the Charles Weasmer Collection (Secession Presbyterianism), and other 18th-century Scottish holdings.
