NORTH AMERICAN CONFERENCE ON
BRITISH STUDIES
ANNUAL MEETING
Montreal, Quebec
NOVEMBER 9-11, 2012

The NACBS and its Northeastern affiliate, the Northeast Conference on British Studies, seek participation by scholars in all areas of British Studies for the 2012 meeting.  We will meet in Montreal, Quebec, from November 9-11. We solicit proposals for panels on Britain, the British Empire and the British world. Our interests range from the medieval to the modern. We welcome participation by scholars across the humanities and social sciences.

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 and reflections on landmark scholarship. We are particularly interested in submissions that have a broad chronological focus and/or interdisciplinary breadth. North American scholars, international scholars and Ph.D. students are all encouraged to submit proposals for consideration.  Complete panel or roundtable proposals that consider a common theme are more likely than individual papers to be successful. Panels typically include three papers and a comment; roundtables customarily have four presentations. Individual paper proposals will also be considered, but we urge those with single paper submissions 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).

All scholars working in the field of British Studies are encouraged to apply for the 2012 conference, though we particularly welcome submissions from those who did not appear on the 2011 program. Panels that include both emerging and established scholars are encouraged: we welcome the participation of junior scholars and Ph.D. candidates beyond the qualifying stage. To foster intellectual interchange, we ask applicants to compose panels that feature participation from multiple institutions. 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.

Submissions will be taken at www.nacbs.org/conferences.html from late January through March 1, 2011.

If you have questions about the submission process or suggestions for program development, please contact

Report on the 2011 NACBS Annual Meeting

Posted by jaskelly under Announcement, NACBS | Tags: kennedy, NACBS, nacbs 2011 | 0 Comments

Area

Report on the 2011 Annual Meeting:

The 2011 annual meeting of the NACBS, which has just concluded, was a sparkling success.   Registered participants numbered 367, making it one of the most popular and successful meetings in recent years.   Those on the program included at least 37 scholars from British institutions, five from Australia, and one from France.   Some of the most distinguished scholars in the field of British studies were present; so too were a number of graduate students, 15 of whom received travel funding from the NACBS Stern fund.  The program offered 56 separate panels on a vast array of topics, periods, and places, providing a showcase of cutting-edge scholarship for all interests and tastes.  There were two stimulating plenary addresses, one by Pat Thane (Kings College London) on “Happy Families? Varieties of Family Life in Twentieth-Century Britain,” and the other by Thomas Cogswell (University of California, Riverside) on “The Duke’s Two Bodies: Politics and Political Culture in Early Stuart England.”  In addition, Philippa Levine (University of Texas at Austin) gave a presidential address on “Naked Truths: Bodies, Knowledge and the Erotics of Colonial Power.”

The conference was as socially convivial as it was intellectually stimulating.  The receptions on Friday and Saturday evenings were crowded with talkative conference participants, who then packed local restaurants and bars.  The weather in Denver was ideal, with clear skies and unseasonably balmy temperatures, and the facilities and services provided by the Sheraton Hotel were excellent.  Special thanks must go to Marjorie Levine-Clark (University of Colorado Denver) and Andrew Muldoon (Metropolitan State College of Denver), the local arrangements team who did so much to make the meeting such a success.  Next year we converge in Montreal, another appealing venue.  I hope to see you there.

The following prizes were presented at the Saturday awards reception:  the John Ben Snow Prize for the best book written about the period prior to 1800 went to Arianne Chernock for Men and the Making of Modern British Feminism (Stanford University Press).  The Albion Prize for the best book on the post-1800 period went to Elaine Hadley, Living Liberalism: Practical Citizenship in Mid-Victorian Britain (University of Chicago Press).   Susan Pedersen’s “Getting Out of Iraq—in 1932,” which appeared in the American Historical Review won the Love Prize for the year’s best article.  Honorable mention went to Amy Whipple, ‘Into every home, into every body: Organicism and anti-Statism in the British Anti-Fluoridation Movement, 1952-60’, Twentieth Century British History.   Stephanie Koscak (Indiana University) won the NACBS-Huntington Library Fellowship for her project, “Multiplying Pictures for the Public: Reproducing the English Monarch, c. 1649-1780.”   Dissertation Fellowship: Ryan Bibler (University of Virginia) was awared the NACBS Dissertation Fellowship for his project, “Extension and Adaptation of European Legal Forms to the English Atlantic World (c. 1550-1700).”  The Dissertation Travel Grant went to Samantha Sagui (Fordham University) for her project, “Law, Order, and the Development of Urban Policing in Late Medieval England.”  
President Levine was also pleased to announce that the Albion Prize is to be renamed next year the Stansky Prize in honor of the distinguished and beloved historian (and past president of the NACBS), Peter Stansky.

NACBS/WCBS Restaurant Guide
The Denver Visitors’ Bureau http://www.denver.org lists many restaurants all over the city. There are lots of eating and drinking establishments very close to the hotel; it’s easy to grab a quick bite, sandwich, or burger on the 16th Street Mall.

You will find the FREE 16th Street Mall Shuttle the best way to move around downtown (or you can walk). The Shuttle stops at every corner on 16th Street between Civic Center and Wynkoop Street.

The following restaurants are highlights, according to me. I take my food and drink seriously.
~Marjorie Levine-Clark

 

Downtown
The following restaurants/drinking establishments are either walking distance or a free mall shuttle ride from the Sheraton:

9th Door, 1808 Blake St., http://www.9thdoor.com/. Really good tapas. Becomes a scene after 9pm or so.

Bistro Vendome, 1420 Larimer St., http://www.bistrovendome.com. Lovely French bistro with lots of atmosphere.

ChoLon Modern Asian Bistro, 1555 Blake St., http://www.cholon.com/denver/. A new favorite. Really interesting cocktails. Try the house-made tonic with Leopold’s gin.

Euclid Hall, 1317 14th St., http://www.euclidhall.com/. Homemade sausages and good beer.

Falling Rock Tap House, 1919 Blake St. http://fallingrocktaphouse.com/. Over 75 beers on tap. The real deal.

Marco’s Coal-Fired Pizza, 2129 Larimer St., http://www.marcoscoalfiredpizza.com/. If you’re an east-coast pizza snob (like me), Marco’s might not do it for you, but they do have tasty pies.

Osteria Marco, 1453 Larimer St., http://www.osteriamarco.com/. Homemade salami and cheeses, pizzas, and delicious fare all around.

Panzano, 909 17th St., http://www.panzano-denver.com/. Northern Italian. Good happy hour. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Pint’s Pub, 221 W. 13th Ave, http://pintspub.com/. Cask conditioned ales and the “purveyor of the largest selection of single malt whisky this side of Edinburgh, Scotland.” Not really downtown, but walking distance from the Sheraton.

Restaurant Kevin Taylor, 1106 14th St., http://www.ktrg.net/. Very upscale, very good, very expensive.

Rioja, 1431 Larimer St., http://www.riojadenver.com/. Mediterranean. I highly recommend this one.

Sushi Sasa, 2401 15th St., http://www.sushisasadenver.com/. I might rate Sasa the best sushi in Denver (along with Sushi Den and Itzakaya Den, which are much further from downtown).

TAG Restaurant, 1441 Larimer St., http://tag-restaurant.com/.  Funky small plates and cocktails.

Tamayo, 1400 Larimer St., http://www.richardsandoval.com/tamayo/. Very good modern Mexican cuisine.

Vesta Dipping Grill, 1822 Blake St., http://www.vestagrill.com/.  Love the bar and small plates here. One of my favorites.

Wazee Supper Club, 1600 15th St., http://www.wazeesupperclub.com/. Excellent pizza (even according to east coast snob) and beer. Casual and fun.

Wynkoop Brewing Company, 1634 18th St., http://www.wynkoop.com/. The place that led the renaissance of LoDo. Brew pub and fare.

Confluence Park area
Take the 16th Street Mall Shuttle to the west end, walk down to 15th St. (If you like outdoorsy stuff – you’ll find the flagship REI in this area on the other side of 15th.)

House of Commons, 2401 15th St., http://www.houseofcommonstea.com/. Tea house with good salads, sandwiches, scones and cream.

Mona’s. 2364 15th St., http://monasrestaurant.com/. Breakfast and lunch. Very good.
Paris on the Platte, 1553 Platte St., http://www.parisontheplattecafeandbar.com/. Café and bar. Open late.

Proto’s Pizzeria, 2401 15th St. (actually on Platte St.), http://www.protospizza.com/. Not east coast pizza, but good. Fun atmosphere.

Zengo, 1610 Little Raven St., http://www.richardsandoval.com/zengodenver/. Asian-Latin fusion – and it works.

Uptown
A bus ride (the 20 down 17th) or long walk or cab from the Sheraton. My home turf.

Cheeky Monk, 534 E. Colfax, http://www.thecheekymonk.com/ . Belgian brews and pub fare. The 15 bus.

dBar Desserts, 1475 E. 17th Ave., http://www.dbardesserts.com/. More than just desserts. Always a crowd.

Il Posto, 2011 E. 17th Ave., http://www.ilpostodenver.com/.  Worth the trip. Delicious, fresh, innovative Italian. I’m a regular.

Olivea, 719 E. 17th Ave., http://www.olivearestaurant.com/. Mediterranean small and large plates. Yummy.

Parallel 17, 1600 E. 17th Ave., http://www.parallelseventeen.com/.  Modern Vietnamese. Good for small plates and large.

Steuben’s, 523 E. 17th Ave., http://www.steubens.com/. Funky diner-ish restaurant with good cocktails.

Strings, 1700 Humboldt St., http://www.stringsrestaurant.com/. An institution. Always good.

The Thin Man, 2015 E. 17th Ave. http://www.thinmantavern.com/. No food, great bar. Infused vodkas.

Vine Street Pub, 1700 Vine St., http://www.mountainsunpub.com/. Great beer, good pub fare.

Capitol Hill/Congress Park/Cherry Creek
A few are walkable, but most a cab ride. My other home turf. All of these would be worth the price of a cab.

Barolo Grill, 3030 E. 6th Ave., http://www.barologrilldenver.com/.  A special occasion meal. Northern Italian. Fantastic. Pricey.

Bones, 701 Grant St., http://www.bonesdenver.com/. Amazing. Noodle bowls and fantastic apps. Tiny place.

Fruition, 1313 E. 6th Ave.. http://fruitionrestaurant.com/. One of America’s top new restaurants in 2007. Intimate, lovely, local.

Table 6, 609 Corona St., http://www.table6denver.com/. Interesting combinations, delicious results.

The NACBS and its Western affiliate, the WCBS, seek participation by scholars in all areas of British Studies for the 2011 meeting. We solicit proposals for panels on Britain, the British Empire and the British world. Our interests range from the medieval to the modern. We welcome participation by scholars across the humanities and social sciences.

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 and reflections on landmark scholarship. North American scholars, international scholars and Ph.D. students are all encouraged to submit proposals for consideration.

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. We urge those with single paper submissions 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).

All scholars working in the field of British Studies are encouraged to apply for the 2011 conference, though we especially welcome papers from those who did not appear on the 2010 program. Panels that include both emerging and established scholars are especially encouraged, as are submissions with broad chronological focus and interdisciplinary breadth. We welcome the participation of junior scholars and Ph.D. candidates beyond the qualifying stage. To enable intellectual interchange, we ask applicants to compose panels that feature participation from a range of institutions. 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 15, 2011.

The 2010 Meeting of the North American Conference on British Studies is now open for registration at <http://www.nacbs.org/conference.html>.  We hope that you will join us in Baltimore, Maryland, from 12-14 November at the historic Tremont Suites Hotel.  Our program there will feature an extended format, with forty-nine regular sessions as opposed to the forty-two of recent years.  Special sessions will address new directions in early modern history, current developments in twentieth-century history, and pressing questions for the digital humanities.  Plenary speakers will include Richard Price and Amanda Vickery.  We look forward to seeing you in November.

Sincerely yours,
Lara Kriegel
NACBS Program Chair, on behalf of the NACBS Program Committee
