This serves as a reminder that all submissions for inclusion in the British Scholar Annual Conference must be received by Sunday, July 5, 2009. Decisions on inclusion will be made by September 25, 2009. Submissions should be made electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. Updates regarding the conference will be periodically posted to the British Scholar website.
The conference will be held in Austin, Texas from Thursday, March 25 through Saturday, March 27, 2010 at the Harry Ransom Center on the University of Texas campus. Professor T. M. Devine will serve as the Keynote Speaker for the 2010 conference. Professor Devine is the author or editor of some two dozen books and around 100 academic articles on topics such as emigration, famine, empire, Scottish transatlantic commercial links, Irish immigrants, urban history, the Scottish Highlands, sectarianism, and identity and rural social history.
The conference, which is organized by the British Scholar Society and British Studies at the University of Texas, focuses on British history from 1688 to the present. The purpose of the British Scholar Conference, just like the British Scholar Journal, is to highlight the importance of British history from varied perspectives. Established scholars, scholars at the beginning of their careers, and graduate students are welcome to apply and present at the conference. It should be noted that becoming a member of the British Scholar Society entitles you to a discounted registration rate. Membership in the British Scholar Society is available on the British Scholar website by visiting our membership page.
The conference accepts both individual paper and complete panel submissions. Submissions of individual papers should include an abstract of 150-300 words as well as a few descriptive keywords. Panels are expected to consist of three to four papers and should be submitted by the person willing to serve as both chair and respondent. In addition to abstracts for each individual paper, the panel chair should also include a brief 100-150 word introduction describing the panelís main theme. The conference does not discriminate between panels and individual paper submissions.
