Dear NACBS member,

I am delighted to announce the appointment of Dr. Laura Beers, Associate Professor of History at American University, as the NACBS’s inaugural Executive Director, effective January 1.  Laura is a longtime and committed member of NACBS and an accomplished scholar of political history, most recently the author of Red Ellen: The Life of Ellen Wilkinson, Socialist, Feminist, Internationalist (Harvard UP), which won a Stansky Prize in 2017.  As Executive Director, Laura will be responsible for coordinating the NACBS annual meeting, providing support to the regional Conferences on British Studies, liaising with affiliate organizations, and overseeing communication.  

One of Laura’s particular ambitions as Executive Director is to up the NACBS’s media profile. She’ll be in touch in due course, but if anyone has published or spoken on their work in the media recently, feel free to drop Laura a line at [email protected] .

Please join me in welcoming Laura into this role.

Yours sincerely,

Anna Clark

President, NACBS
