Call for Papers for the Special Issue of the International Review of Scottish Studies
2014 marks the 700th anniversary of the iconic Battle of Bannockburn. Not only did this battle change life in medieval Scotland, it also influenced the way later generations of Scots conceived of themselves and their history. To mark this event, editors at the International Review of Scottish Studies are now accepting submissions for a special issue that will investigate the impact of Bannockburn in history. It will include selected papers from the St Andrews Society of Toronto’s “Bannockburn Then and Now” conference on 21 June 2014 (http://www.standrews-society.ca/event/battle-of-bannockburn-event-scotland-then-and-now/). The issue will be published online, as part of an open-access, EBSCO-indexed journal. Submissions will be peer reviewed, and must be submitted to the IRSS website, http://www.irss.uoguelph.ca/, by 1 May 2014.
An essay prize of $300 will be available for the best submission from an early career researcher. Graduate students and early career researchers within 24 months of completion of a graduate degree are eligible.
