Chicago_montage.jpgThe Midwest Conference on British Studies is proud to announce that its 60th Annual Meeting will be hosted by DePaul University in Chicago, October 11-13, 2013.  
 

The keynote speaker will be Professor Robert Bucholz of Loyola University of Chicago, and the plenary address will be given by Professor Jonathan Rose of Drew University. The MWCBS is also pleased to celebrate the career of Professor Walter L. Arnstein at this year's meeting.

The MWCBS seeks papers from scholars in all fields of British Studies, broadly defined to include those who study England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and Britain's Empire and the Commonwealth. We welcome scholars from a broad spectrum of disciplines, including but not limited to history, literature, political science, gender studies and art history. Proposals for complete sessions are preferred, although proposals for individual papers will be considered. We welcome roundtables (of four participants plus chair) and panels (of three participants plus chair/commentator) that:

* offer cross-disciplinary perspectives on topics in British Studies

* situate the arts, letters, and sciences in a British cultural context

* examine representations of British and imperial/Commonwealth national identities

* consider Anglo-American relations, past and present

* examine new trends in British Studies

* assess a major work or body of work by a scholar

* explore new developments in digital humanities and/or research methodologies

After positive responses to recent roundtables on teaching and employment, we would particularly like to receive proposals for teaching roundtables that discuss collaborative or innovative learning techniques in the British Studies classroom and for professional development roundtables dealing with research, publication, or employment. We are also pleased to announce a session on holdings available to scholars conducting research in the Chicago area.

The MWCBS welcomes papers presented by advanced graduate students and will award the Walter L. Arnstein Prize for the best graduate student paper(s) given at the conference. A limited number of graduate travel scholarships will be available, and all graduate students are encouraged to apply. Please see the MWCBS website for further details: http://mwcbs.edublogs.org/

Proposals must:

-       Include a 200-word abstract for each paper and a brief, 1-page c.v. for each participant, including chairs and commentators.

-       For full panels, include a brief 200-word preview of the panel as a whole.

 

Please place the panel proposal, the accompanying paper proposals and vitas in one file and send it as a single attachment. Also identify within the email the contact person for the panel.

All proposals should be submitted electronically by April 15, 2013, to the Program Committee Chair, Jennifer McNabb at JL-Mcnabb@wiu.edu .

Program Committee: Martin Greig, Ryerson University; Phil Harling, University of Kentucky; Robin Hermann, University of Louisiana at Lafayette; Isaac Land, Indiana State University; Jennifer McNabb, Chair, Western Illinois University; and Cathryn Spence, University of Guelph.
