The Scottish writer James Hogg (1770-1835), best known for his haunting novel The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner, has become widely known in recent years for the breadth of his prolific and diverse writing.

This website aims to assist with dissemination of findings from Hogg-related research projects conducted at the University of Stirling, and to promote ongoing international research into this unique writer. It replaces the original James Hogg Research site created in 2007, and all of the information and resources held there will appear here once the transfer is complete. During the transition, what does not appear on the new site may be accessed here.
