Special symposium on Robin Hood

_39177612_robinhoodstatue2300Hosted by Ann Rippin, SCOS Chair (Home town – Nottingham)

The conference will include a mini symposium on Robin Hood as Nottingham is known, courtesy, perhaps, of Howard Pyle; Walter Scott; Warner Bros. and Walt Disney, as the home of this forest-dweller of note.  The symposium will concentrate on the main theme of home, but may also include:

  • Narratives of place and space in the construction of home
  • The tension between the ‘pure’ and ‘natural’ forest and the wickedness and corruption of the court
  • The outlaw as hero, maverick leaders
  • Corporate governance in the absence of formal authority
  • Robin Hood taxes
  • Local heroes and narratives and marketing cities
  • Homosociability
  • Contested narratives of home, homelands and local legends
  • Robin Hood, popular culture and organisation.
