1 Christian AUER, Agrégé, Professeur émérite à l’Université de Strasbourg, est spécialiste de civilisation britannique. Il travaille principalement sur les aspects économiques, politiques, sociaux et culturels de l’Écosse au xixe siècle. Il est l’auteur de nombreux articles et de plusieurs ouvrages dont Scotland and the Scots (1707-2007), A Reader (Strasbourg: Presses Universitaires de Strasbourg, 2013) et Luttes et résistances des femmes écossaises, 1838-1915 (Paris, L’Harmattan, Collection des idées et des femmes, 2013).

2 Annette BÄCHSTÄDT is a binational and trilingual researcher in History and Early English Literature, who also works as free-lance journalist, translator and picture researcher specializing in the arts, history and heritage, thus covering a broad visual spectrum. At present, she is completing her doctoral thesis on Marie de Lorraine-Guise, a contribution to cross-border, comparative and interdisciplinary studies. In 2015-2016, she initiated and co-organized the first French colloquium dedicated to this 16th century queen of Scotland born in France, but ignored in her native country. She co-edited a bilingual issue of the “Annales de l’Est”, Marie de Lorraine-Guise. Un itinéraire européen, published in 2018. A second article on Marie de Lorraine and a study on the crowning of Emperor Frederick III of Habsburg in 1452, are in preparation for printing in 2019.

3 Danièle BERTON-CHARRIERE est Professeur émérite, membre du laboratoire POURPRE, IHRIM-CLERMONT, UMR 5317, CNRS, de l’Université Clermont Auvergne (UCA), France. Ses thèmes de recherche sont: le théâtre élisabéthain et jacobéen; le théâtre écossais contemporain; l’intertextualité et l’intersémioticité (peinture, performances théâtrales…); les problèmes d’attribution de textes anonymes et les méthodes assistées par ordinateur (stylostatistique et lexicométrie); la traduction de textes dramatiques pour la scène, de l’anglais (standard, écossais, « doric » et argotique) vers le français. Elle a soutenu une thèse de troisième cycle en 1980: « Concordance des œuvres de Cyril Tourneur », et une thèse de Doctorat d’État en 2002: « Cyril Tourneur: vie et œuvre d’un dramaturge jacobéen » (biographie, problèmes d’attribution et traduction annotée de The Atheist’s Tragedy).

4 Jean BERTON, Professeur émérite de l’Université de Toulouse Jean-Jaurès, il privilégie l’exploration des aspects de l’Écosse dans une approche interdisciplinaire: littérature, civilisation, les arts et les langues. Si le multilinguisme revendiqué de l’Écosse requiert la re/connaissance des langues nationales, l’intersémioticité invite à l’étude des différents langages qui sous-tendent la richesse culturelle de l’Écosse. Ouvrir à la recherche des voies peu fréquentées, telles que celles de la littérature de la Haute-Écosse et de la littérature policière (romans et pièces dramatiques), pour qu’elles soient exposées, explorées et exploitées, est une démarche délibérément ostensible dans son récent Dictionnaire insolite de l’Écosse.

5 Sarah BISSON teaches English in Paris Teachers’ Training College (Sorbonne Université - Faculté des Lettres). Her training and work experience has led her to conduct research into both Scottish literature and didactics. After focusing on the representation of space in Sir Walter Scott’s novels, she is now interested in narrative strategies in contemporary Scottish literature. She has published articles on Sir Walter Scott’s Jacobite novels and the use of literature in teaching English (ESL).
