The second World Congress of Scottish Literatures will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada from June 21st - 25th, 2017 in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Eighteenth-Century Scottish Studies Society and will bring together scholars from around the world. The conference’s subtitle, “Dialogues and Diasporas,” speaks to the range of ways in which Scotland is articulated both at home and within a global context. At the same time, it acknowledges the multiple roles Scotland has played in the production of both globalism and localism.

The geographical location of the conference on the West Coast of Canada draws particular attention to two key themes of the conference:

1. Indigenous/Scottish relations, and

2. Transpacific/Scottish connections
