PCCBS Conference Sonoma State, March 25-27, 2022

The Pacific Coast Conference on British Studies invites paper and panel proposals for its 47th Annual Meeting, to be held at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California, March 25-27, 2022.

The PCCBS invites papers representing all fields of British Studies — broadly defined to include those who study the United Kingdom, its component parts and nationalities, as well as Britain’s imperial cultures. We welcome proposals from scholars and doctoral candidates in a wide range of disciplines across the humanities, social sciences, and the arts, including History, Literature, Political Science, Philosophy, Religion, Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, Theater Studies, and Art History.

Proposals for individual papers, partial panels, or complete panels are all welcome, although complete panel proposals are preferred. We encourage the submission of proposals dealing with interdisciplinary topics, as well as panels on new pedagogies and technologies associated with British Studies.

The deadline for submission of proposals is JANUARY 10, 2022. Proposals should include a 200-word abstract for each paper plus a one-page c.v. for each participant. Those submitting full or partial panel proposals should include a brief description of the panel plus a 1-page c.v. for the panel chair as well as for its commentator. Please place the panel proposal, its constituent paper proposals, and all vitae in a single file, making certain that your contact information, especially e-mail addresses, are correct and current. Proposals should be submitted via e-mail attachment to: noonan@sonoma.edu.

*Graduate students who have papers accepted by the program committee will be eligible to request reimbursement for some travel expenses from the Stern Trust when registering for the conference.

NACBS Mentoring Program

PCCBS encourages members to participate in NACBS’s new mentoring program that pairs advanced graduate students and early-career scholars with established scholars.

Mentorship may take a range of forms, but it is primarily intended as a means to offer concrete advice regarding the academic and professional job markets, developing and sustaining research agendas, publication strategies, finding and sustaining networks of support, juggling professional commitments, and other career-related issues.

This program is open to all scholars of British Studies wherever they may reside. Mentors should retain active membership status within NACBS throughout their participation in the program; however, mentees are encouraged but not required to join the NACBS.

For more information, and to apply, please see: http://nacbs.org/blog/announcement-of-nacbs-mentoring-program/
