The Southern Conference on British Studies solicits proposals for its 2004 meeting to be held November 3-6, 2004 in Memphis, Tennessee. The SCBS will meet in conjunction with the Southern Historical Association.
The SCBS construes British Studies widely and invites participation by scholars in all areas of British history and culture, including the Empire or Commonwealth and the British Isles. Interdisciplinary approaches and proposals which focus broadly on teaching British studies are especially welcome.
Proposals may consist of individual papers or of papers grouped for a session. For session proposals, two, or, preferably, three papers should relate to a common theme, not necessarily bound by the usual chronological framework.
For each paper proposed, please submit an abstract of 200 to 300 words, indicating the thesis of the paper, the sources and methodology employed in research, and how it enhances or expands knowledge of its subject. Papers should have a reading time of twenty to twenty-five minutes. Also, please submit a curriculum vitae for each participant.
PROPOSALS SHOULD BE POSTMARKED BY SEPTEMBER 29, 2003 AND MAILED TO the address below. Inquiries are welcome via email, but please send proposals by mail or fax.
