The North American Conference on British Studies (NACBS) will hold its 2007
Annual Meeting, in conjunction with the Pacific Coast Conference on British
Studies (PCCBS), in San Francisco, California, from Friday, November 9 to
Sunday, November 11, 2007.

We solicit proposals for panels on England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and the
British Empire broadly defined. Our interests range from the medieval to the
modern, and we welcome participation by historians, literary critics,
economists, sociologists, art historians, and scholars in other allied
disciplines. We invite panel proposals treating selected themes, methodology,
and pedagogy, as well as roundtable discussions of topical work. North
American scholars, international scholars, and graduate students are all
encouraged to submit proposals to the Program Chair of the NACBS.

Strong preference will be given to complete panel proposals on a common theme.
Individual paper proposals will also be considered if several of them can be
assembled to create a viable panel, but those with individual paper submissions
are encouraged to post a call for additional panelists on H-Albion or to email
the program chair for other suggestions. No participant will be permitted to
take part in more than one session, and no more than one proposal will be
considered from each applicant. Committed to the principles of ensuring the
broadest possible participation of scholars of all facets of British Studies,
the program committee will give priority to proposals submitted by those who
did not read papers at each of the last two consecutive meetings.

The call for papers and guidelines for online submission of proposals are
located at:

To be considered, all proposals MUST be received by the NACBS Program Committee
by Friday, February 16, 2007.

General questions about panel requirements should be sent to
