2003 will see the four-hundredth anniversary of James Stewart's 
accession to the English throne. Looking backward from this triumphant 
high point towards James's minority and personal government in Scotland,
and forward to his rule as first king of Great Britain, this conference 
will embrace both his reigns and all facets of the 'Jacobean 
Renaissance'. Proposals are invited on any aspect of Jacobean 
government, politics, religion, literature, art, architecture, or music.

Please send proposals or enquiries to
