The Ninth International Scott Conference

Walter Scott: Sheriff and Outlaw

5-9 July 2011
University of Wyoming
Laramie, Wyoming

Scott was a lawyer, friend to the great, and literary authority, yet he became so by breaking all the rules. Walter Scott: Sheriff and Outlaw encourages new understanding of Scott's innovations, and his contribution to literary and other fields up to the present day.

The conference will offer sessions, plenaries, workshops, roundtables, advice from journal editors, and a trip to see the West Walter Scott has made. It will concide with Laramie's Jubilee Days, when cowboys ride herd through town and the rodeo lets rip.
