Inaugural British Scholar Annual Conference
Posted: October 15, 2007
More than 50 scholars from around the world are expected to participate. The conference will focus on eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth century British history.
The goal of the BSAC is to highlight the importance of British history from varied perspectives. Whether focusing on the study of economics, empires, identities, or politics, the British influence on modern society cannot be underestimated. The conference's goal is to understand Britain's vast contribution to the world, by studying its history.
Another aim of the conference is to launch the British Scholar peer reviewed journal. Papers submitted for publication will be put through the peer review process for inclusion in the very first issue of the British Scholar journal.
The Editorial Advisory Board consists of five professors from the University of Texas at Austin, scholars from around the world, and two history graduate students who will have key roles on the Board of the UT-based journal.
The conference aspires to highlight the importance of the work being conducted at the University of Texas at Austin by both faculty and graduate students on British history.
With the publication of the peer reviewed British Scholar journal, it is hoped that a lasting connection between UT's British Studies Program and its Department of History will be established with academics throughout the world.
