Subject: 	2007 Western Conference of British Studies

The call for papers for the 2007 Western Conference on British Studies 
(WCBS) annual meeting on November 1-3, 2007, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, 
which was issued earlier has now been extended to JUNE 18, 2007.

The meeting will take place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown 
Albuquerque, New Mexico.

We solicit proposals for panels on England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, 
and the British Empire broadly defined. Our interests range from the 
medieval to the modern, and we welcome participation by historians, 
literary critics, economists, sociologists, art historians, and scholars 
in other allied disciplines. We invite panel proposals treating selected 
themes, methodology and pedagogy, as well as round table discussion of 
topical work. North American scholars, international scholars, and 
graduate students are all encouraged to submit proposals to the program 
chair of the WCBS. Proposals for entire panels on a given theme will be 
given priority, although individual paper proposals will also be 
considered if several of them can be assembled to create a viable panel. 
The WCBS is committed to the principles of ensuring the broadest 
possible participation of scholars of all facets of British studies.

We are pleased to announce that the plenary speaker at the conference 
will be Professor Mrinalini Sinha of Penn State University.

Proposals for both complete sessions and individual papers will be 
accepted.  Proposals for panels should include the following: a list 
containing paper titles, names and contact information for each 
panelist; a statement of the overall purpose and goals of the panel; a 
200-300 word abstract for each paper to be read; and a one or two page 
C.V. for all participants. Proposals for individual papers should 
include name and contact information, as well as the paper abstract and 
brief C.V.

The WCBS welcomes papers from advanced graduate students and awards a 
$500 prize for the best graduate student paper presented at the conference.

To be considered, all proposals must be received by the Program 
Committee by Friday, April 27th, 2006. You may e-mail your materials
