‘Robert Louis Stevenson: New Perspectives’


Edinburgh Napier University 5-8 July 2017


The Centre for Literature and Writing (CLAW) at Edinburgh Napier University is delighted to be hosting the international Robert Louis Stevenson conference in July 2017. Under the title ‘Robert Louis Stevenson: New Perspectives’, the conference will be exploring the possibilities of fresh approaches which challenge traditional approaches to Stevenson’s works. The aim of the conference is to broaden the scope of Stevenson studies beyond the well-trodden literary terrain, to consider Stevenson’s lesser known works and to invite new applications of thought and theory to every aspect of this most multifarious of writers’ work.


The conference will begin on the afternoon of Wednesday 5 July and end at lunchtime on Saturday 8 July. Friday afternoon will be free for delegates to explore Edinburgh.
