Call for Papers

MACBS Annual Meeting
William & Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia
Saturday 6 April and Sunday 7 April 2019

The MACBS is soliciting proposals for papers and panels on all areas of British Studies for our annual conference at William & Mary in Williamsburg. We welcome participation from scholars of Britain, the British Atlantic World, and the British Empire broadly defined, and we are open to proposals ranging from the ancient to the contemporary and from scholars of history, anthropology, literature, art, politics, economics and related fields. Senior faculty, junior faculty, and graduate students are all encouraged to participate.

Proposals for both individual papers and full panels are welcome. Paper proposals should include a brief (no more than 250 words) abstract of the paper and a curriculum vita. Full panel proposals should also include a one-paragraph description of the panel’s overall aim and indicate which panel member will serve as the organizer and primary contact.

Williamsburg, part of the “Historic Triangle” of communities in Southeast Virginia, is accessible by air, train, and car. It is a lively college town and popular sightseeing destination.

All submissions must be received by 17 December 2018.
