In fall of 2018, the WCBS will return to San Antonio TX for our annual meeting. We will convene at the Sheraton Gunter, just steps from the historic Alamo, the River Walk and other sites. Panels will run all day on Friday Sep. 28 and Saturday Sep. 29.
The Sheraton Gunter will be offering rooms at $US 139/nt.
We are very pleased to inform you that our keynote speaker will be Carla Pestana, Professor and Joyce Appleby Endowed Chair of America in the World at UCLA. We will also hear our traditional address by outgoing WCBS President, Andrew Muldoon (Metropolitan State University of Denver).
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. 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 to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of the day on Friday, March 2, 2018.
