This web site was initially set up to record information relating to the Current Thinking on the Western conferences and associated events that were organised and convened by Lee Broughton during his time as a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow. It has since expanded its remit in order to host material relating to the International Scholars of the Western Network, which Lee convenes. Lee is the author of The Euro-Western: Reframing Gender, Race and the ‘Other’ in Film (2016) and the editor of Critical Perspectives on the Western: From A Fistful of Dollars to Django Unchained (2016).
