We welcome scholars from the broad spectrum of disciplines, including but not limited to history, literature, political science, gender studies and art history. Proposals for complete sessions are preferred, although proposals for individual papers will be considered. Especially welcome are:
• Anglo-American Relations: past and present
• Cross Disciplinary panels examining two or more approaches to British Studies
• Roundtables devoted to the process of publishing articles in scholarly journals
• Paper and panel submissions relating to online or technology-based teaching and research in British Studies.
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:
Proposals should include a 200-word abstract for each paper and a brief c.v. for each participant, including chairs and commentators. All proposals should be submitted online by April 15, 2006 to:
