Western Conference on British Studies Annual Conference
October 2014, Calgary, Alberta
Call for Papers
“Crisis, Conflict, and Conciliation”
The Western Conference on British Studies announces the forty-first annual conference that will convene in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on 3 -5 October 2014.
As always, we invite panels of 3 or 4 presenters with chair and commentator or individual papers on any aspect of British studies. We also welcome individual research posters. For the 2014 meeting in part to recognize the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War and Britain’s role in that conflict, we are especially keen to welcome papers that focus on or situate research within the theme “Crisis, Conflict, and Conciliation” broadly conceived, including military conflict, class conflict, economic crisis, gender conflict, existential crisis, reconciliation, legal disputes and settlements, and so on.
The conference will feature a plenary address by Dr. Gordon Martel (Professor Emeritus, University of Northern British Columbia) author of the forthcoming July 1914: the month that changed the world (Oxford, 2014) and a keynote address by outgoing WCBS President Professor Greg T. Smith (University of Manitoba).
Please submit proposals, including a 250 word abstract for each paper and a 1-2 page c.v. for each presenter, chair and/or commentator to the program co-chairs: Dr. Lynn MacKay MacKay@BrandonU.CA and Dr. Jessica Sheetz-Nguyen firstname.lastname@example.org
