The Network academic activities

The works of RLS continue to be published, regularly have new translations, as well as new adaptations in comics, for the cinema or the stage.

Several universities (for example; Edinburgh Napier and Bordeaux) devote large resources to studies about Stevenson, but there are also many independent academics around the world. Long and patient work by a group of passionate academics has resulted in the creation of the New Edinburgh Edition of Stevenson’s work.

International conferences are organized, such as in Bordeaux in 2022.

The European network In the Footsteps of Robert Louis Stevenson draws on this broad range of individuals and resources. A recent example has been the extension of the cultural route to Menton, in the south of France.
