On April 4-5, 2014, St. Cloud State University will host the twenty-second annual Northern Plains Conference on Early British Literature in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The organizers invite papers on literary-critical, theoretical, and pedagogical subjects concerning texts written in Britain from the Middle Ages through the early nineteenth century. This conference has traditionally served as a venue for encouraging collaboration and the sharing of works in progress. Professor Rebecca Krug of the University of Minnesota will give the keynote address.

Please send a 250-word abstract for a twenty-minute paper to Glenn Davis (gmdavis@stcloudstate.edu) by February 21, 2014. (Please note the updated deadline.) Panel proposals are also welcome.

Registration is $75 and includes all meals from breakfast on Friday through lunch on Saturday. We have reserved a block of rooms for $89/night at the Le St. Germain Suite Hotel (www.lestgermainsuitehotel.com), which is in walking distance to campus. Please let the hotel staff know that you are participating in the conference when you make your reservation.
