A New Platform for Scottish Renaissance Studies, Perth, Scotland, 26th & 27th October, 2013.

October 26, 2013 - October 27, 2013

The purpose of this conference is to set a new platform for future research in the field of Scottish Renaissance Studies by bringing together research undertaken in the last decade into a coherent whole. In addition to the five  papers sessions there will be two site visits, one to the privately owned Megginch Castle on the Carse of Gowrie and the other to Huntingtower to the west of Perth, ancient paternal seat of the earls of Gowrie, which Historic Scotland has recently reinterpreted.

The conference is  by way of celebration of the contribution of Professor Charles McKean to the field of Scottish Renaissance Studies, with particular reference to the architecture of the Scottish country seat, on the occasion of his retirement from the University of Dundee.
