The abstract submission deadline for the sixtieth annual meeting of the Midwest Conference on British Studies has been extended to April 15, 2013. The MWCBS will be hosted by DePaul University in Chicago, October 11-13, 2013. We are proud to announce that the keynote speaker will be Professor Robert Bucholz of Loyola University of Chicago, and the plenary address will be given by Professor Jonathan Rose of Drew University. The MWCBS is also pleased to celebrate the career of Professor Walter L. Arnstein at this year's meeting.
The MWCBS seeks papers from scholars in all fields of British Studies, broadly defined to include those who study England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and Britain's Empire and the Commonwealth. We welcome scholars from a 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. We welcome roundtables (of four participants plus chair) and panels (of three participants plus chair/commentator) and encourage submissions from graduate students.
-Include a 200-word abstract for each paper and a brief, 1-page c.v. for each participant, including chairs and commentators.
-For full panels, include a brief 200-word preview of the panel as a whole.
Please place the panel proposal, the accompanying paper proposals and vitas in one file and send it as a single attachment. Also identify within the email the contact person for the panel.
All proposals should be submitted electronically by April 15, 2013, to the Program Chair, Jennifer McNabb, at JL-Mcnabb@wiu.edu.
