2023 Britain and the World Conference
Call for Papers for the 2023 Britain and the World Conference, Pittsburgh PA, US.
After this year's successful return to in-person conferencing, in Plymouth, UK, we return to the US next: Thursday 20 to Saturday 22 April 2023 at Duquesne University.
We are delighted to be able to announce our plenary speakers: Marcus Rediker, of the University of Pittsburgh, and Heather Streets-Salter, of Northeastern University, and Carole Levin of the University of Nebraska will be in conversation.
Call for Papers
As ever, the conference is concerned with interactions between Britain and the wider world from the sixteenth century to the present and will highlight the importance of transnational perspectives. As a conference and society concerned with British Studies, we welcome papers from relevant disciplines on all topics and periods.
We accept individual twenty-minute talks as well as complete panel submissions and roundtables. Abstracts should be 250-300 words. Panels are expected to consist of three or four papers and should be submitted by one person who is willing to serve as the point of contact. Complete panels should also include a chair. In addition to abstracts for each individual paper, panel and roundtable submissions should also include a 100-150-word introduction describing the main theme, and a set of keywords. The conference does not discriminate between panels and individual paper submissions, nor among graduate students, established academics, and independent scholars.
The conference will be in-person, though there may be some provision for virtual participation. Please state your preference with your proposal.
