Culver Center of the Arts, Riverside
The Pacific Coast Conference on British Studies invites you to its 46th Annual Meeting, to be held at the Culver Center of the Arts
, UC Riverside, 20-22 March 2020.
While we will be meeting at the UC Riverside Culver Center for the Arts, many of the participants will be staying across the street at the Mission Inn and Spa. Room reservations should be made by Wednesday, February 19, 2020. Each attendee should contact the Hotel’s Room Reservations Department at 800-843-7755 or 951-784-0300, extension 850. Attendees must reference the Pacific Coast Conference for British Studies (PCCBS) when making their reservation(s).
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.
