WESTERN CONFERENCE ON BRITISH STUDIES
2012 Meeting
Las Vegas, NV

CALL FOR PAPERS
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: 15 April, 2012

The 2012 meeting of the WCBS will take place 20-23 September, 2012 in Las Vegas, NV at the 'off-the-strip' SpringHill Suites.

The organizers invite papers on any aspect of the British experience but are especially keen to receive panel proposals or individual papers that speak to the theme: “The Seven Deadly Sins in British Studies”. We take the broad view of British Studies to include the United Kingdom and its antecedents and constituents in any time period, as well as Britain's colonial and imperial past. In recent years, we have included papers and presentations from established scholars and advanced graduate students in many social science and humanities disciplines, including history, literature, political studies, philosophy, religion, women's and gender studies, English, film and theatre, and art history.

The WCBS offers an annual prize--recently christened the Bob McJimsey Graduate Student Paper Award-- to the paper judged the best contribution by a currently-enrolled graduate student, presented at the annual conference.

Proposals, including a 250 word abstract for each paper, a brief (2 page) c.v. for each presenter, commentator and chair and full contact details should be sent via email, preferably all as one attached document (subject line: WCBS 2012 Proposal) to
Dr. Christopher Frank
Department of History
University of Manitoba, <frankc@ms.umanitoba.ca> by *15 April 2012*.
