The Pacific Coast Conference on British Studies invites paper and panel proposals for its 49th Annual Meeting, to be hosted by UC Riverside, March 24-26, 2023, and held at the Barbara & Arts Culver Center for the Arts in downtown Riverside. We will be reserving a block of rooms at the historic Mission Inn Hotel and Spa.
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 graduate students* in a wide range of disciplines across the humanities, social sciences, and the arts, including History, Literature, Political Science, Philosophy, Religion, Musicology, Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, Theater Studies, and Art History. Proposals for roundtables, workshops, individual papers, partial panels, or complete panels are all welcome. We are especially interested in papers from graduate students and early career scholars. We also 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 December 16, 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 brief c.v. for the panel chair/commentator in addition to each presenter. Please place the panel proposal, its constituent paper proposals, and all vitae in a single PDF file, making certain that your contact information, especially e-mail addresses, are correct and current. Proposals should be emailed directly to Erika Rappaport at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add PCCBS 2023 Conference to the subject line. Thank you.
*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.
