On April 8-9 of 2011, the Northern Plains Conference on Early British Literature (NPCEBL) will hold its nineteenth annual conference.

This year, the NPCEBL will be hosted by Saint Mary's University of Minnesota, nestled in the bluffs along the Mississippi river in Winona, MN. The conference attracts advanced scholars, graduate students, and select undergraduates from the upper Midwest (and farther) to discuss literary-critical, theoretical, and pedagogical issues concerning the early literatures of the British isles. The keynote speaker this year will be Dolores Frese of the University of Notre Dame.

A formal call for abstracts (for submission by February) will be posted in December, but early inquiries regarding panels (professional or student) or conference arrangements are welcome. Please direct questions to John Kerr, jkerr@smumn.edu.
