Religious belief has had a profound influence on Scottish history. Both within and outside of Scotland, believers from the time of St. Columba to John Knox to the modern world have aided in the development of what might be considered ‘Scottish Religion’. As we recently marked the 450th anniversary of the Scottish Reformation, it seems appropriate, then, to consider the changing face of religion in Scotland.
With this in mind, The Centre for Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph invites proposals for the third volume in the Guelph Series in Scottish Studies. This fully peer-reviewed volume will consider Scottish Religion, broadly defined. Proposals are welcome from both established and emerging scholars in a variety of academic disciplines and time periods. The editors welcome proposals on a range of subjects to do with Scottish religion, including, but not limited to: The institutional church, popular piety, the diaspora, religious violence, religious networks, gender, sport, identity, class, and minority religions.
Chapter proposals of 500 – 1000 words, along with a short CV, should be submitted by e-mail to dmacleod [at] uoguelph [dot] ca by March 15, 2012. Authors will be notified of accepted proposals by April 15, 2012. Final papers of 5000-7000 words must be completed by August 31, 2012, after which they will be sent to referees. A fall 2013 publication date is planned.
