The Pacific Coast Conference on British Studies invites paper and panel proposals for its 46th Annual Meeting, to be held at UC Merced, March 22-24, 2019.
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 (including doctoral candidates working on their thesis*) 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 pedagogies and technologies.
The deadline for submission of proposals is DECEMBER 1st, 2018. Proposals should include a 200-word abstract for each paper plus a biography for each participant. Those submitting full or partial panel proposals should include a brief description of the panel plus a brief biography for the panel chair as well as for its commentator (if any). Proposals will be submitted by google forms. As we will use the data entered for the program, please be careful with spelling of names, institutions and paper titles.
Individual paper proposals should be submitted here.
Panel proposals should be submitted here.
Any questions should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
*Doctoral candidates 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.
