This one-day symposium is a landmark opportunity to discuss queer writing in Scottish literature. The event celebrates the launch of the Scottish Literary Review special issue, ‘Queer Form in Scottish Writing’, co-edited by Zoë Strachan and Darryl Peers. The day will gently disrupt the form of the academic symposium, giving attendees plenty of opportunity to engage with the ideas and topics raised by contributors in a friendly environment. We welcome attendees from within and outside of the academy to reflect on the intersections which may, or may not, exist between studies of sexuality and gender, and studies of the nation.
