The deadline has been extended to 30 June for submitting paper and panel proposals for the Western Conference on British Studies, which will meet in Tempe, Arizona 6 to 8 October 2016. The theme this year is “Citizens and Subjects” broadly conceived (citizenship, contested identities, race and citizenship, royal subjects, barriers to citizenship, gendered citizens, revoked citizenship, immigration or emigration, civil defence, civic duty, Imperial subjects, the politics of identity, etc.). We welcome papers and panels addressing its various meanings, as well as single papers and panels of 3 or 4 presenters with chair and commentator, on any aspect of British Studies from the Medieval to the Modern periods. We also welcome individual research posters. Please submit proposals in Word rather than PDF format, including a 250 word abstract for each paper and a 1-2 page c.v. for each presenter, chair and/or commentator, to the Program Co-chairs: Dr. Lynn MacKay at WCBSAZ2016@gmail.com. The submission deadline is now 30 June, 2016.
