CFP: Southern Conference On British Studies 2012 Meeting (3/1/2012; 11/2-3/2012)

The Southern Conference on British Studies solicits proposals for its 2012 meeting to be held November 2-3, 2012 in Mobile, Alabama. The SCBS will meet in conjunction with the Southern Historical Association at the Renaissance Riverview Plaza Hotel.

The SCBS construes British Studies widely and invites participation by scholars in all areas of British history and culture, including the Empire or Commonwealth and the British Isles. Interdisciplinary approaches and proposals which focus broadly on teaching British studies are especially welcome.

Proposals may consist of individual papers or of papers grouped for a session. For session proposals, two, or, preferably, three papers should relate to a common theme, not necessarily bound by the usual chronological framework.

For each paper proposed, please submit an abstract of 200 to 300 words, indicating the thesis of the paper, the sources and methodology employed in research, and how it enhances or expands knowledge of its subject. Papers should have a reading time of twenty to twenty-five minutes. Also, please submit a curriculum vitae for each participant.

Proposals Should Be Postmarked By March 1, 2012 And Mailed To:

Dr. William Anthony Hay, Department of History, P.O. Box H, Mississippi State University, Mississippi State, MS 39762.  

Inquiries are welcome at, but please do not send proposals by email or fax.
