Midwest Conference on British Studies
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Midwest Conference on British Studies is proud to announce that its fifty-sixth annual meeting will be hosted by Baldwin-Wallace College at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel, and it is pleased to have the following keynote speakers for this event:
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. We welcome scholars from the 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. Especially welcome are roundtables and panels that:
• offer cross-disciplinary perspectives on topics in British Studies
The MWCBS also invites submissions for a special series of panels engaging the work of David Cressy, Humanities Distinguished Professor of History at Ohio State University and author of Dangerous Talk: Scandalous, Seditious, and Treasonable Speech in Pre-Modern England and Birth, Marriage, and Death: Ritual, Religion, and the Life Cycle in Tudor and Stuart England. Professor Cressy will serve as respondent for these sessions.
The MWCBS welcomes papers presented by advanced graduate students and will award The Walter L. Arnstein Prize at its plenary luncheon for the best graduate student paper given at the conference.
Proposals should 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, please include a brief 200 word preview of the panel as a whole. In addition, please place the panel proposal, and its accompanying paper proposals and vitas in one file. Please make certain that all contact information, particularly email addresses are correct and current. All proposals should be submitted online by May 15, 2010, (an extended deadline) to the Program Committee Chair, Rick Incorvati, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
