Upcoming Meeting

San Antonio TX, September 28-29, 2018 Annual Meeting

Proposals are invited for the 2018 meeting of the Western Conference on British Studies to be held in San Antonio, Texas.

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 by the end of the day on Friday, March 2, 2018.

All scholars working in the field of British Studies are encouraged to apply for the 2018 conference.

If you have questions about the submission process or suggestions for program development, please contact:
