This serves as a call for papers for the sixth annual Britain and the World Conference. Papers will focus on British interactions with the world from the seventeenth century to the present and will highlight the importance of British history from a global perspective. Established scholars, scholars at the beginning of their careers, and graduate students are welcome to apply and present at the conference.
The fourth annual Wm. Roger Louis Prize, awarded to the best paper delivered at the Britain and the World Conference, will also be announced on 30 March. The Prize is worth $1000 and the winning paper will appear in a forthcoming issue of the Society’s journal Britain and the World: Historical Journal of The British Scholar Society, published by Edinburgh University Press.
The conference accepts both individual paper and complete panel submissions. Submissions of individual papers should include an abstract of 150-300 words as well as a few descriptive keywords. Panels are expected to consist of three to four papers and should be submitted by one person who is willing to serve as the point of contact. Complete panels must also include a chair. In addition to abstracts for each individual paper, panel submissions should also include a brief 100-150 word introduction describing the panel’s main theme. The conference does not discriminate between panels and individual paper submissions.
All submissions for inclusion in the Britain and the World Conference must be received by Monday, 15 October 2012. Decisions on inclusion will be made by Thursday, 1 November 2012. Submissions should be made electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
