Call for Papers, Annual Meeting, Burlington, Vermont, September 24-25, 2010

The Northeast Conference on British Studies (NECBS) will hold its annual meeting in 2010 in Burlington, Vermont, on Friday and Saturday September 24 and 25. The 2010 conference will be hosted by the University of Vermont, with Paul Deslandes in charge of the local arrangements.

We solicit the participation of scholars in all areas of British Studies, broadly defined. In particular, we welcome proposals for interdisciplinary panels that draw on the work of historians, literary critics, and scholars in other disciplines whose focus is on Britain and its empire, from the Middle Ages to the present. Proposals for entire panels on a common theme will be given priority, although individual paper proposals will also be considered if several of them can be assembled to create a viable panel. Proposals for roundtable discussions of a topical work, or current issue in the field, or pedagogical practices with respect to the teaching of particular aspects of British Studies are also encouraged. The typical ninety-minute panel will include three papers, each lasting fifteen-twenty minutes, a chair, and a commentator. Roundtables may have a looser format.

Proposals should include a general description of the panel or roundtable (including an overall title), a 200-300 word abstract for each paper to be read and a one-page curriculum vitae for each participant. The address, phone number, and e-mail address of EVERY participant (including the chair and commentator) must be included in the proposal. For panel or roundtable proposals the name of the main contact person should be noted clearly. Electronic submissions (as e-mail attachments in Word) are preferred, with all the various materials presented in a single document.

All submissions must be received by March 15, 2010 (final decisions will be announced in June 2010).

Please send your proposals to:
Margaret R. Hunt
Department of History
Amherst College
Amherst, MA 01002-5000
