Southern Conference on British Studies
November 11-12, 2022: Baltimore, MD
Call for Papers
Deadline for submission extended to May 31, 2022
The Southern Conference on British Studies solicits proposals for its 2022 meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. The SCBS will meet in conjunction with the Southern Historical Association.
The SCBS construes British Studies widely and invites participation by scholars in all areas of British history and culture, including the Empire or Commonwealth and the British Isles. We welcome both individual and panel submissions on any topic in British Studies, but especially those related to this year’s theme of Communication and Contact, which includes works that explore engagement across political, social, racial, religious or spatial divides, as well as examinations of how such connections are both created and challenged.
We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Katie Hindmarch-Watson, Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University, will deliver the plenary.
Individual proposals should be no more than 250 words in length and include a short biographical statement. Panel proposals should be limited to 750 words and include a rationale for the panel as well as a brief description of each paper and participant. Proposals should be sent to Dr. Jill Bender at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The SCBS Charles Perry Graduate Student Prize ($250) will be awarded to the best paper presented at the conference by a graduate student. Entries must be received by October 15, 2022.
Graduate students who present papers at SCBS meetings are eligible to apply for one of two $500 Research Travel Awards given annually by the SCBS. Graduate students are eligible in the two years following their presentation. See the SCBS website for more information: https://www.scobs.org/graduate-student-travel-award.
