The NACBS, the main organization for British Studies in Canada and the United States, along with its Mid-Atlantic affiliate, the MACBS, seek participation by scholars in all areas of British Studies. The 2004 conference will be held October 29th to October 31st in Philadelphia, PA. We solicit proposals for panels on England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and the British Empire broadly defined. Our interests range from the medieval to the modern and we welcome participation by historians, literary critics, economists, sociologists, art historians, and scholars in other allied disciplines. We invite panel proposals treating selected themes, methodology, and pedagogy, as well as roundtable discussion of topical work. North American scholars, international scholars, and graduate students are all encouraged to submit proposals to the Program Chair of the NACBS. Proposals for entire panels on a common theme will be given priority, although individual paper proposals will also be considered if several of them can be assembled to create a viable panel. No participant will be permitted to take part in more than one session, and no more than one proposal will be considered from each applicant. Committed to the principles of ensuring the broadest possible participation of scholars of all facets of British Studies, the program committee will give priority to proposals submitted by those who did not read papers at each of the last two consecutive meetings. North American participants in the meeting must be members of the NACBS.
Proposals should include FOUR COPIES of each of the following:
completed Cover Sheet
a statement of the overall purpose and goals of the panel
a 200-300 word abstract for each paper to be read
a one or two page curriculum vitae for ALL participants.
The Call for Papers, Cover Sheet, and Guidelines for Submission of Proposals are located at our website below.
To be considered, all proposals MUST be received by the NACBS Program Committee by Friday, January 23, 2004. We do not accept proposals via e-mail or fax.
