The forty-second annual conference of the Western Conference on British Studies will meet in Austin, Texas on October 15-17, 2015. The theme this year is ‘Body Politics’, a term that has been used variously by political and gender scholars. The conference organizers welcome papers and panels addressing its various meanings, as well as single papers and panels of 3 or 4 presenters with chair and commentator, on any aspect of British Studies from the Medieval to the Modern periods. The organizers also welcome individual research posters.
Please submit proposals in Word rather than PDF format, including a 250 word abstract for each paper and a 1-2 page c.v. for each presenter, chair and/or commentator, to the Program Co-chairs: Dr. Lynn MacKay and Dr. Jessica Sheetz-Nguyen at WCBSTX2015@gmail.com. The submission deadline is April 30, 2015.
