CFP: Britain and the World Conference (Exeter, June 2018)

After its tenth annual conference in Austin last year, the British Scholar Society invites submissions to its eleventh Britain and the World Conference, to be held at the University of Exeter from 21 to 23 June 2018. The conference will concern, as always, interactions with the “British world” – including the British Empire and wider interactions between Britain and other points of the globe – from the seventeenth century to the present. Publishers from Edinburgh University Press and Palgrave Macmillan will be on hand to discuss the society’s journal and book series, including a commissioning editor open to discussing publishing plans.

The conference will accept both individual twenty minute papers and complete panel submissions of three papers each. In addition to paper abstracts, panels should be accompanied by 100-300 word descriptions of their respective themes. Participants may span the entire range from graduate students to senior scholars.

Submissions should be received by 15 December 2017 to editor@britishscholar.org, with all information in the body of an email (no attachments) in the following order: name, affiliation, email, paper title, abstract, keywords. Decisions on submissions will be rendered by 8 January 2018. Further information is available in the official call for papers, and further questions may be submitted to conference@britishscholar.org.
