About Studies in Hogg and his World      

Studies in Hogg and his World was established in 1990. Its founding editor was Dr Gillian Hughes, the eminent James Hogg scholar, author of James Hogg: A Life (Oxford University Press, 2007), and editor, co-editor, or associate editor of a great many volumes of Hogg’s works for the Stirling / South Carolina Research Edition of the Collected Works of James Hogg. Dr Hughes edited twenty-one issues of Studies in Hogg in his World before handing over the editorship in 2010 to Dr Hans de Groot (1939-2019), Professor Emeritus of the University of Toronto, the editor of the Stirling / South Carolina edition of James Hogg’s Highland Journeys, and author of scholarly articles and book chapters on Hogg’s works. With the passing of Dr de Groot in 2019, the editorship was taken up by Dr Holly Faith Nelson, Professor and Chair of English at Trinity Western University, co-editor, with Dr. Sharon Alker, of James Hogg and the Literary Marketplace: Scottish Romanticism and the Working-Class Author (Ashgate, 2009; Routledge, 2018), and co-author, with Dr Alker, of a series of articles and book chapters on the life and works of James Hogg published over the past two decades.
