Sir David Lyndsay, A Satire of the Three Estates
An International Symposium
University of Edinburgh, 6-8th June, 2014
This two-and-a-half day, residential conference at the University of Edinburgh is sponsored by the ‘Staging and Representing the Scottish Court’ project, which put on performances of The Three Estates at Linlithgow Palace and Stirling Castle in June 2013 (see the website, http://www.stagingthescottishcourt.org/ for further details).
The conference will involve academic papers, a panel discussion of The Three Estates in contemporary Scotland, workshop performances by actors involved in the June 2013 production, and the chance to visit the new Three Estates exhibition at Stirling Castle and witness a community production of the 1540 Interlude by the Linlithgow Players.
Proposals are invited for short (20 minute) papers on any aspect of Sir David Lyndsay’s play, A Satire of the Three Estates, its theatrical, historical, or cultural contexts.
Proposals (a one-paragraph summary of the topic to be covered) should be sent in the first instance to Professor Greg Walker. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
