The PCCBS invites papers representing all fields of British Studies--broadly defined to include those who study the United Kingdom, its component parts and nationalities, as well as Britain’s imperial cultures.  We welcome proposals from scholars and doctoral candidates in a wide range of disciplines across the humanities, social sciences, and the arts, including History, Literature, Political Science, Philosophy, Religion, Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, Theater Studies, and Art History.

Proposals for individual papers, partial panels, or complete panels are all welcome, although complete panel proposals are preferred.  We encourage the submission of proposals dealing with interdisciplinary topics, as well as panels on new pedagogies and technologies associated with British Studies.

Dear All,

In order to make the MWCBS more efficient, we've transferred our mailing list to a listserv.  The MWCBS Listserv is a moderated list and functions to make announcements to MWCBS members and friends.  You will receive very few messages, and these will pertain only to MWCBS business.

Member can send MWCBS-related announcements to the list, but these will be moderated.  To receive and make general announcements or queries to the British Studies community, please use H-Albion.

Please encourage your colleagues and students to join the list.  It is important that we are able to be in contact with all members and friends of the MWCBS community.

You can leave the list at any time. Information is below.  There is also subscription information on the website at
<http://mwcbs.edublogs.org/listserv-mwcbs-l/>

I look forward to seeing you in Cleveland in October.

Best wishes,
Jason
