For the twelfth conference in this long-running and highly successful series, we are returning to the University where the saga began in 1986.  Aberdeen University is situated in the heart of a region with one of the most distinctive and best-preserved local cultural traditions in Scotland: fittingly, therefore, a main theme of the conference will be Local voices: dialect and folk-speech in regional literatures.

It is also renowned for its pre-eminence as a centre for Scottish and Irish studies: another theme which will receive special prominence will therefore be: Exile and homeland: the preservation of identity in diaspora literature.
