Welcome to the SCBS


Welcome to the Southern Conference on British Studies (SCBS), a regional branch of the North American Conference on British Studies (NACBS).  The Conference meets annually, customarily in the Fall in conjunction with the Southern Historical Association.  The meeting comprises two days of paper sessions with two or more panels running concurrently.

Full information regarding registration and accommodations, as well as the preliminary program for our SCBS 2023 Annual Meeting will be posted soon under the “Annual Meeting” tab ( ). We look forward to the excellent panels, keynote, and discussions at this year’s SCBS Conference, to take place at the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Membership Information

The SCBS construes British Studies very broadly to include the history, literature, arts, and culture of the Home Islands and the Commonwealth.  It welcomes into membership anyone interested in such subjects, whether or not pursued professionally.

Dues for the SCBS are $15 annually for regular membership, $10 for students, and $300 for a lifetime membership.  As a courtesy, the Southern Historical Association extends the option of affiliate membership (non-voting) to members of the SCBS for $7.  For those interested, full membership in the SHA’s European History Section is available.


All SCBS dues may be paid either through the SCBS Secretary/Treasurer or can be paid through our shop on this site.
