What, when & where

Call for Papers Annual BrANCH Conference

Madingley Hall, Cambridge, 9-11 October 2020

BrANCH 2020 and COVID-19

BrANCH is assuming, or at least very much hoping, that the current Covid-19 pandemic will be over by October 2020 and, with it, the travel restrictions between the US and the UK (and indeed anywhere else) will be lifted. So we encourage you to submit your panel and paper proposals as normal by the original Call for Papers deadline of Friday 8th May. We will continue to monitor the situation, and will make a decision on how best to manage registration, which would not normally open until June in any event. We can assure you that if we have to cancel BrANCH2020, a full refund for conference fees will be given. We cannot cover travel costs and/or losses, however, so we advise later than usual booking, perhaps, to ensure confidence that you can fly. The BrANCH Conference Secretary, Liz Barnes, has ensured that she has the dates to cancel by firmly in her diary, so we will let you know promptly (by the end of August, if not earlier) if there is any risk of BrANCH2020 at Madingley not going ahead. Please all take care in this current crisis.

——————————–

Deadline & how to apply

The BrANCH committee is pleased to invite proposals for our 27th annual conference, to be held at Madingley Hall, Cambridge, 9-11 October 2020.

The Parish Lecturer for 2020, we are delighted to announce, is Professor Adam Smith, author of The Stormy Present: Conservatism and the Problem of Slavery in Northern Politics, 1846-1865 (UNC Press 2017) and No Party Now: Politics in the Civil War North (OUP 2006).

The BrANCH Keynote for 2020, we are equally delighted to announce, is Professor Elaine Frantz, author of Ku-Klux: The Birth of the Klan during Reconstruction (UNC Press 2016) and Manhood Lost: Drunken Men and Redeeming Women in the Nineteenth-Century United States (John Hopkins University Press 2003).

The BrANCH Committee would like to invite both panels and individual papers on all aspects of U.S. history from the period 1789 to 1917. We particularly encourage panels that open new lines of communication between established thematic specialties as well as individual papers that cut across traditional categories of historical inquiry in imaginative and innovative ways. Sponsored panels and postgraduate contributions are especially welcome.

In line with BrANCH’s diversity initiative, proposals for single-gender panels are unlikely to be accepted. Sponsored panels and postgraduate contributions are especially welcome. Due to limitations of space on the programme we are also unlikely to accept paper proposals from those who presented at our last two conferences (Edinburgh, 2019 and Missouri, 2020); this does not prevent them from chairing a panel however.

Other info, Links & conditions

Subsidies for UK-based postgraduate participants are available for those not in receipt of support from their home institutions. These will be offered on a first come first served basis.

We are pleased to introduce a childcare/carers bursary for postgraduates and ECRs with caring responsibilities. Full details to follow on our website.

Please send a brief CV and a summary of the proposed paper or panel (no more than 3 speakers per panel and 300 words per paper, please) by Friday 8th May 2020 to the Conference Secretary at: branchconference2020@gmail.com.

Please note that all programme participants will be expected either to be members or register as BrANCH members before the conference.

Further information on membership can be found here, and please see our Twitter feed (@Branch19th) for regular updates, or you can email the Chair, susan-mary.grant@ncl.ac.uk.
