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:

New Reviews for December on Reviews in History

Posted by dannymillum under Announcement | 0 Comments

The following reviews of possible interest to followers of the British and Irish Studies Intelligencer were published in December in the Institute of Historical Research’s e-journal Reviews in History.

This month we begin with evaluations of two books on 18th-century history. First Rosalind Carr (no. 831) tackles Karen O’Brien’s Women and Enlightenment in Eighteenth-Century Britain (see here for the author’s response), while a very different and more male-oriented aspect of the period is discussed in Jason Kelly’s review (no. 832) of The Hell-Fire Clubs: Sex, Satanism and Secret Societies by Evelyn Lord.

Two books on medieval history next – Miriam Müller and Chris Briggs discuss (no. 835 and response) the latter’s Credit and Village Society in Fourteenth Century England, while elsewhere a book of comparative religious and cultural history, A Tale of Two Monasteries: Westminster and Saint-Denis in the Thirteenth Century by William Chester Jordan, is reviewed (no. 836) by Andrew Abram.

Adam Matthew’s new website, The Grand Tour, collates letters, diaries, printed guidebooks, travel writing, maps, paintings and architectural plans within one searchable online resource. It’s reviewed here (no. 839) by Katy Layton-Jones.

Our other review this month is by Laura Tabili, who recommends (no. 840) Jacqueline Jenkinson’s new book on the racial violence of 1919, Black 1919: Riots, Racism and Resistance in Imperial Britain.

As always, all comments or suggestions should be sent to danny.millum@sas.ac.uk.
