2022 MID-ATLANTIC CONFERENCE ON BRITISH STUDIES ANNUAL MEETING
The College of William & Mary, Williamsburg, VA
Saturday and Sunday, April 23-24

The MACBS – the mid-Atlantic affiliate of the NACBS, the main organization for British Studies in Canada and the United States – is soliciting proposals for papers and panels on all areas of British Studies for our annual conference.  We intend to meet in-person at William & Mary in Williamsburg on Saturday April 23 and Sunday April 24. We welcome participation from scholars of Britain, the British Atlantic World, and the British Empire broadly defined, and we are open to proposals ranging from the ancient to the contemporary and from scholars of history, anthropology, literature, art, politics, economics and related fields. Senior faculty, early career faculty, and graduate students are all encouraged to participate.

Proposals for both individual papers and full panels are welcome. Paper proposals should include a brief (no more than 250 words) abstract of the paper and a curriculum vita. Full panel proposals should also include a one-paragraph description of the panel’s overall aim and indicate which panel member will serve as the organizer and primary contact.

Williamsburg, part of the “Historic Triangle” of communities in Southeast Virginia, is accessible by air (either RIC or PHF), train, and car. It is a lively college town and popular sightseeing destination.

The current plan is to meet in-person following the health guidelines of the College of William & Mary.  If we are able to meet in-person, logistical considerations regretfully prevent us from allowing virtual presentations. 

All submissions must be received by 21 January 2022.
