    We welcome scholars from a broad spectrum of disciplines, including but not limited to English and literature, history, political science, gender studies, art, and music history. We invite proposals from scholars at all stages of their careers, including independent scholars.  The MWCBS equally welcomes individual paper proposals and proposals for panels (two-four presenters, plus chair and/or commentator), roundtables, poster sessions, and panels featuring the pre-circulation of papers among participants and audience members.  The MWCBS encourages presenters to use H-Albion and the discussion board at the conference blog,, to find additional panelists. If needed, our organization can help to find chairs, commentators, and additional panelists. 

    The MWCBS welcomes proposals that:

    • Present new research on the political, social, cultural, and economic history of the British Isles, the empire, and the Commonwealth

    • Situate literature, the arts, and sciences in a British cultural context
    • Examine representations of British and imperial/Commonwealth national identities, including the construction of identities shaped by race, class, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, and dis/ability
    • Explore new developments in digital humanities, pedagogies, and/or research methodologies
    • Present professional development sessions on collaborative or innovative learning techniques in the British Studies classroom or on topics of research, publication, public outreach, or employment relevant to British Studies scholars

    The MWCBS welcomes presentations by graduate students and will award the Walter L. Arnstein Prize for the best graduate student paper(s) given at the conference. A limited number of Jim Sack Travel Awards will also be available.  All graduate students are encouraged to apply. Further details will be available on the MWCBS website:

    L'Association des Étudiant.e.s Diplômé.e.s du Département d'Histoire de l'Université de Montréal organise son Colloque étudiant annuel. Vous trouverez l’appel en pièce jointe et la page Facebook ici : 

    Nous encourageons les étudiant.e.s d’autres universités à participer et acceptons des communications en français et en anglais. Celles et ceux qui désirent envoyer leur candidature devront le faire avant le 20 janvier 2024 au

    Le colloque aura lieu à l’Université de Montréal le 13, 14 et 15 mars 2024. Ayant pour thème « Dissonances et dilemmes en histoire: Penser les échelles de la complexité humaine, » le colloque offre l’occasion d’interroger ce que l’humain, comme objet d’étude inépuisable et penseur de sa propre histoire, comporte de discordant, voire d’irréconciliable. Admettre la difficulté de ramener l’humain à l’unité constitue déjà un point d’appui que nous regardons comme stimulant.  

    Si vous avez d’autres questions, n’hésitez pas à nous contacter.
