The Midwest Conference on British Studies will hold its annual meeting in East Lansing, Michigan on October 22-24, 2004. The host institution for this fiftieth annual meeting is Michigan State University.
The MWCBS seeks papers from scholars in all fields of British Studies, broadly defined to include those who study England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and Britainís empire. Proposals for complete sessions organized around a common theme are preferred, though proposals for individual papers will be considered if they can be combined with others. Especially welcome are cross-disciplinary panels and proposals for thematic sessions or roundtable discussions on interdisciplinary issues and teaching British history, literature and culture. The MWCBS also encourages paper and panel submissions relating to online or technology-based teaching and research in British Studies. Proposals should include a 200-word abstract for each paper and a brief c.v. for each participant, including chairs and commentators.
The MWCBS welcomes papers presented by advanced graduate students and will award a prize for the best graduate student paper given at the conference. As always, further information is available from the MWCBS website:
