St Louis, Missouri
The Southern Conference on British Studies solicits proposals for its 2013 meeting to be held November 1-2, 2013 in St Louis, Missouri. The SCBS will meet in conjunction with the Southern Historical Association at the Millen.
The SCBS invites participation by scholars in all areas of British history and culture, including that of 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.
March 29, 2013 is the Deadline for submissions either by post or e-mail:
Dr. William Anthony Hay, Department of History, P.O. Box H, Mississippi State University, Mississippi State, MS 39762. firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to contact by e-mail with inquiries.
