The next Western Conference on British Studies annual meeting will be held at the Sheraton Salt Lake City hotel on September 27-28, 2019.
The WCBS Program Committee, co-chaired by Susan Grayzel and Joseph Ward of Utah State University, seeks to design a meeting that is both interdisciplinary and wide-ranging in its temporal span. Scholars of Britain, the British Atlantic World, and the British Empire broadly defined are invited to participate. Professor Durba Ghosh of Cornell University will deliver the conference’s keynote lecture.
The committee welcomes proposals for both individual papers and full panels, and it encourages graduate student submissions. Proposals should include a 250-word abstract of each paper and a short curriculum vitae for each participant. Full panel proposals should also include a brief description of the panel's overall aim and indicate clearly the panel’s organizer and primary contact. Please submit proposals via email (with “WCBS 2019” in the subject line) to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of the day on Friday, April 19, 2019.
The conference will also feature a poster session for undergraduate students; please contact the conference organizers for more information on this session.
