Member news

The NACBS is proud of the accomplishments of its members and is happy to provide a venue to showcase the wonderful work of British Studies scholars. This section of the website is intended to allow members to announce recent publications (especially books), to highlight fellowship awards, and to notify other members of major new appointments and/or positions. It is not intended to circulate calls for papers or to serve as a general mechanism for communication. To ensure that the "Members News" section functions properly, it will be moderated by the association's Executive Secretary.
