The North American Conference on British Studies (NACBS) will hold its 2008 annual meeting, in conjunction with the Midwest Conference on British Studies (MWCBS), in Cincinnati, Ohio, from Friday October 3 to Sunday October 5, 2008.
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, political scientists, 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.
Strong preference will be given to complete panel proposals on a common theme. Individual paper proposals will also be considered if several of them can be assembled to create a viable panel, but those with individual paper submissions are encouraged to post a call for additional panelists on H-Albion or to email the program chair for other suggestions. 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. Panels that include the full range from graduate students through senior faculty are especially encouraged.
All submissions must be received by Friday, February 15, 2008.
Further details and guidelines for online submissions may be found at: http://www.nacbs.org/ann.html
General questions about panel requirements should be sent to:
Steven Pincus, NACBS Program Chair.
