The Institute of Scottish Historical Research is pleased to announce the hosting of a one-day conference in honour of Professor Roger Mason. Featuring contributions from leading scholars, this conference will examine how we define and date these two movements in Scotland, particularly as a result of Professor Mason’s extensive work on Scottish renaissance culture, and intellectual and textual history. The major themes to be discussed on the day include political thought in Scotland; new ways of looking at the renaissance and reformation in Scotland; Knox, Buchanan and James VI; the intersection of politics, history and literature; and renaissance literature and iconography.

Please see the attached programme for the full schedule. The event is free and a buffet lunch will be provided, but places are limited. If you would like to attend, please email Dr Malcolm Petrie (mp49@st-andrews.ac.uk) by Friday 5 October to register.
