CALL FOR PAPERS
NORTH AMERICAN CONFERENCE ON BRITISH STUDIES

ANNUAL MEETING
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND
NOVEMBER 12-14, 2010

The NACBS and its Mid-Atlantic affiliate, the MACBS, seek participation by scholars in all areas of British Studies for the 2010 meeting.  We solicit proposals for panels on Britain, the British Empire, and the British world.  Our interests range from the medieval to the modern.  Though primarily a conference of historians, we welcome participation by scholars across the humanities and social sciences, especially on interdisciplinary panels.

We invite panel proposals addressing selected themes, methodology, and pedagogy, as well as roundtable discussions of topical and thematic interest, including conversations among authors of recent books.  North American scholars, international scholars, and graduate students are all encouraged to submit proposals to the NACBS Program Committee.

Strong preference will be given to complete panel or roundtable proposals that consider a common theme.  Panels typically include three papers and a comment; roundtables customarily have four presentations.  Individual paper proposals will also be considered in rare cases.  Those with single paper submissions are strongly encouraged to search for additional panelists on lists such as H-Albion or at venues such as the NACBS Facebook page.  Applicants may also write to the Program Chair for suggestions (nacbsprogram@gmail.com).

Committed to ensuring the broadest possible participation of scholars in British Studies, the Program Committee will give priority to those who did not read papers at the 2009 meeting.   Panels that include both graduate students and established scholars are especially encouraged, as are submissions with broad chronological focus and interdisciplinary breadth.  In order to encourage intellectual interchange, we ask applicants to compose panels that feature participation from a range of institutions.  Single-institution panels are not encouraged; similarly, graduate supervisors are discouraged from appearing on panels with their own students and very recent graduates.   No participant will be permitted to take part in more than one session except in exceptional circumstances cleared by the Program Committee, and no more than one proposal will be considered from each applicant.

All submissions must be received by March 1, 2010.
For details, directions, and online submission, see www.nacbs.org/conference.html.

Please send questions about panel requirements
and suggestions about program development to

NACBS Accommodations

Posted by jaskelly under Announcement, Conferences, NACBS | 0 Comments

Area

Due to the high demand for NACBS Rooms at the Hyatt Regency Louisville, we may run out of accommodation there at the Conference rate.   We advise those who are unable to secure rooms at the Hyatt to book at the adjacent Marriott Louisville Downtown, which is the headquarters hotel for the concurrent Southern Historical Association Meeting.  At present, rooms are available there for $115 per night.  To book at the Marriott, please call (800) 533-0127 or access the online portal at http://www.uga.edu/sha/meeting/index.htm.  When booking, please ask for the Southern Historical Association rate.  We advise you to book by our deadline of October 14.  In the event that rooms become unavailable at the Marriott, please contact the conference organizers, who will make what efforts we can to secure more rooms at this late date.

Additionally, The Southern Historical Association has compiled an excellent Louisville Restaurant Guide, which can be found at http://www.uga.edu/sha/meeting/dining_guide.pdf.  During the Conference, those who are interested can also visit the Local Arrangements Table of the Southern Historical Association in the Marriott, where they can find more information and some discount opportunities for downtown restaurants.

Finally, for further information on Louisville visit the Louisville Convention and Visitors Bureau web site at www.gotolouisville.com <http://www.gotolouisville.com/> .

Sincerely yours,

The North American Conference on British Studies/Southern Conference on British Studies has again arranged with The Scholar’s Choice to manage the combined book exhibit for our annual meeting taking place November 6-8 in Louisville, Kentucky. It will be possible for your recently-published books to be included in their display.  Please refer to the guidelines below:

“Any members interested in having their book displayed at the upcoming NACBS/SCBS meeting should contact their publisher as soon as possible.  Please keep in mind that the publishers pay a fee to display with The Scholar’s Choice and may not have the marketing budget necessary to honor all requests, particularly for older titles. Reservations from the publishers will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis so reserving early is highly recommended.  Please note that The Scholar’s Choice displays on behalf of the publishers and ALL requests must come from them, not the author.  The person who handles reservations at The Scholar’s Choice is Debby Pitts. Your publisher may reach her at djpitts@scholarschoice.com or at 585-262-2048 x.108.”
