On April 8-9 of 2011, the Northern Plains Conference on Early British Literature (NPCEBL) will hold its nineteenth annual conference, 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 (medieval through long 18th century). The keynote speaker this year will be Dolores Frese of the University of Notre Dame.

ABSTRACTS are being accepted in any related area until February 14. Please send abstracts, panel proposals, and any inquiries to jkerr@smumn.edu. Selected papers will be published in the annual proceedings.

We will have 30 rooms available at the conference center for $55 per night, available in order of abstract submission/registration. (These are essentially small motel rooms with double bed, television, and internet service). There will also be traditional motel rooms available at a discounted rate. The conference fee will be $65.
