Southern Conference on British Studies
November 11-12, 2022: Baltimore, MD
Call for Papers
Deadline for submission extended to: May 31, 2022
The Southern Conference on British Studies solicits proposals
for its 2022 meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. The SCBS will
meet in conjunction with the Southern Historical Association.
The SCBS construes British Studies widely and invites
participation by scholars in all areas of British history and
culture, including the Empire or Commonwealth and the
British Isles. We welcome both individual and panel
submissions on any topic in British Studies, but especially
those related to this year’s theme of Communication and
Contact, which includes works that explore engagement
across political, social, racial, religious or spatial divides, as
well as examinations of how such connections are both
created and challenged.
We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Katie Hindmarch-Watson, Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University, will deliver the plenary.
Individual proposals should be no more than 250 words in length and include a short biographical statement. Panel proposals should be limited to 750 words and include a rationale for the panel as well as a brief description of each paper and participant. Proposals should be sent to Dr. Jill Bender at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The SCBS Charles Perry Graduate Student Prize ($250) will be awarded to the best paper presented at the conference by a graduate student. Entries must be received by October 15, 2022.
Graduate students who present papers at SCBS meetings are eligible to apply for one of two $500 Research Travel Awards given annually by the SCBS. Graduate students are eligible in the two years following their presentation. See the SCBS website for more information: https://www.scobs.org/graduate-student-travel-award.
