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.

The Official Website of the SCBS

The SCBS is hosting the NACBS Annual Meeting in Atlanta this year, from November 11-14, 2021. For this reason, there is not a separate SCBS Call for Papers, but instead all submissions should be through the NACBS submissions page. Please identify your submission as coming from an SCBS member on your abstract page, and as with our usual SCBS annual meetings, single paper submissions are welcome, as well as complete panels.

Fpr more details, please select the "SCBS/NACBS Annual Meeting" page or the "SCBS/NACBS 2021 Call for Papers" page from the top menu on this website.

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.
