President’s Letter, 12 September 2010

Dear Friends of the MWCBS:

Please join us for our upcoming conference, to be held in Cleveland from 8-10 October.  Thanks to Prof. Connie Evans and Baldwin Wallace College for hosting the conference this year.  We’ll meet in the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel in Public Square, in the heart of downtown Cleveland with easy access to restaurants, the lakefront, and local attractions (including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for those who want to see the Beatles exhibit!).

As always, we have a full program of papers representing a wide spectrum of scholarly interests and approaches within British history.  This year’s program features plenary addresses by Prof. Retha Warnicke of Arizona State University and Prof. Martha Vicinus of the University of Michigan.  Continuing the tradition begun at last year’s conference, we will devote several panels to the work of a single scholar; this year’s panels will examine the work of Prof. David Cressy of Ohio State University.

If you have previously attended an MWCBS conference, you know that this is a thought-provoking, convivial gathering of scholars eager to discuss ideas.  If you haven’t yet enjoyed that experience, you’ll be welcomed as warmly as if you had been coming for years.  In either case, we hope you will join us for this year’s conference.  Registration information is available through the MWCBS homepage.

Please consider getting involved in the MWCBS.  We especially welcome participation on the program committee; please contact Prof. Rick Incorvati ( to express an interest in that committee.  If you would like to host the conference in the future, please contact the incoming president, Prof. Jason Kelly (jaskelly@iupui.ed).

I look forward to seeing you in Cleveland.

With all good wishes,

Carol Herringer
