The Northeast Conference on British Studies (NECBS) will hold its annual meeting in 2016 at Saint Michael’s College in Burlington, VT on Friday and Saturday, October 14 and 15. The 2016 conference will be hosted by Saint Michael’s College, with Jennifer Purcell acting as local arrangements coordinator.

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, on current issues 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 for fifteen to 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. Please include the address, phone number, and e-mail address of all participants (including the chair and commentator) in the proposal. For panel or roundtable proposals, please note the name of the main contact person. 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 April 1, 2016 (final decisions will be announced in mid-late June 2016).

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.

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/

I am writing to you on behalf of the Pacific Coast Conference on British Studies to invite scholars working on Britain to participate in the upcoming meeting of the NACBS, to be held in Portland, Oregon, Nov. 8-10, 2013.  The meeting will take place in the historic Benson Hotel (opened in 1913).  The hotel is centrally located with easy access to restaurants, the lovely classical Chinese Garden, and the ever-popular Powell's Bookstore.  One food critic has described the restaurant scene as "the scrappiest, most original gastronomic destination in America."  Those of you familiar with "Portlandia" will have glimpsed another side of life in the Pacific Northwest, one you might encounter if you visit a coffee shop or brew pub.  The MAX light rail system and the Portland Streetcar make travel around the city easy.  Do not miss out on this opportunity to sample the treats Portland has to offer.  The deadline for panel submissions has been extended to March 25th.  I look forward to seeing you at the meeting.  

Randall McGowen, President PCCBS

The Western Conference on British Studies invites papers for its annual meeting October 3-5, 2013.

For the first time in our history, the Western Conference on British Studies will meet in Kansas City, MO. 

In recognition of Kansas City’s geographic position as the meeting point between urban and rural America, and Missouri’s status as the jumping-off point for the Westward Movement, the conference’s theme will be

“Borders, Boundaries and Frontiers.”  The borders, boundaries and frontiers that we envision range from the geographic to the chronological, from the gendered to the religious, from the boundaries of class to those of nationality and Empire, and we invite everyone to participate! 

Peter Stansky, (Frances and Charles Field Professor of History, Emeritus, Stanford University) will deliver the plenary address. 

Missouri has other links to British history and culture that may inspire presentations or panels for our meeting.  Kansas City was a major centre of Irish immigration in the nineteenth century and we would welcome papers that explored topics on border crossing, immigration or emigration.  Fulton Missouri was the locale for Winston Churchill’s famous “Sinews of Peace” or “Iron Curtain” speech, which gave rhetorical rigidity to the political and cultural boundaries between East and West during the Cold War.  As always, papers on any other aspect of the British experience are welcome, including papers exploring interdisciplinary perspectives, reflections on pedagogical issues, or discussion of art, music or material culture. 

The WCBS welcomes papers from advanced graduate students, and offers the Bob McJimsey prize for the best graduate student paper presented at the conference. 

Proposals for papers and full panels, including a 250 word abstract for each paper and a 1-2 pg. c.v. for each presenter, chair/commentator, should be sent to program co-chairs:

Chris Frank, University of Manitoba (Chris.Frank@ad.umanitoba.ca)  or  Lynn McKay, Brandon University (mackay@brandonu.ca) by 30 April 2013.

Winner of the 2012 PCCBS Book Prize
Reba Soffer, History, Historians, and Conservatism in Britain and America (Oxford, 2010)

The winner of the 2012 PCCBS Book Prize is a longstanding member of our regional organization. Prof. Reba Soffer’s History, Historians, and Conservatism in Britain and America (Oxford University Press, 2010) is a topical and richly textured study of conservative historiography in Britain and America during the 20th century. Soffer carefully situates her conservative historians within their diverse contexts. They emerge as multifaceted characters whose stories illuminate broader themes in modern history, most notably the shift from “compassionate conservatism,” with its emphasis on the reciprocal obligations of individuals and the community, to what Soffer calls the “debacle” of contemporary neoconservatism. She persuasively revises the common assumption that conservatives had no ideology--that they were the “stupid party” to whom ideas were anathema. Instead, she locates conservative thinkers within a larger, coherent, worldview whose confident Chauvinism and emphases on racial histories and identities offer a cautionary tale to modern readers. History, Historians, and Conservatism in Britain and America is a model of careful research and lucid thinking by a leading intellectual historian. And in its generous dedication to Barbara Shapiro, this book links the careers of two of the Pacific Coast Conference’s most steadfast supporters.

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
