CFP: NACBS 2018 Panel on Scottish culture during the Restoration Era

Edwin Sheffield's picture

I am trying to assemble a panel that examines various aspects of Scottish culture during the Restoration Era, 1660-1688/9. My work examines Clan MacKenzie from c. 1651-1707. Would anyone be interested in helping form a panel?

Many thanks,

If you are still collecting papers, I would be happy to offer one on the anti-Union petitioning movement set in train by the 1715 general election in Scotland.

I am still collecting papers. That sounds like a fascinating topic. One of the topics I have discussed with my supervisors focuses on Clan MacKenzie concerns in the run-up to the Act of Union. If you are still interested, I will post a new thread to reflect the shift from a Restoration-era panel to one on the Union.

I am certainly still interested. When is the deadline for putting in a panel proposal?

I would be interested in joining with a paper on the importance of anti-Highland rhetoric in the “Glorious” Revolution. If you’d be interested perhaps we could put it under the heading of “Late Stuart Scotland” or something similar. Or frame the panel as an investigation of the chronological parameters of “Restoration” Scotland.

Hello Daniel and Sam,

The deadline for putting in a panel proposal is 30 March. I think all three papers could work together if we frame the panel under Sam's suggestion of 'Late Stuart Scotland'. As we now have three panellists, would you mind if we continue this via email? Will the email addresses listed on the University of Manchester's and Catholic University's websites be alright?
