The 2011 British Scholar Annual Conference

Sat, April 2, 2011 | Harry Ransom Center

The 2011 British Scholar Annual Conference will take place at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin from 31 March to 2 April.  The final conference program is now available by visiting the Conference 2011 webpage at:

This year our program features 20 panels and one stand-alone lecture in addition to the Frank M. Turner Memorial Lecture and the Keynote Address.  We also have exciting networking events such as the Conference Icebreaker on Thursday, 31 March, the Dinner Party on Friday, 1 April, and our annual outings around downtown Austin on Saturday night, 2 April.  

Peter Clarke will provide the inaugural Frank M. Turner Memorial Lecture on Thursday, 31 March entitled “The English-Speaking Peoples Before Churchill.”  A. G. Hopkins will deliver the Keynote Address, “The United States, 1783-1861: Britain’s Honorary Dominion?”, on Friday, 1 April.  On Saturday, 2 April, Reba Soffer offers us a lecture entitled “Intellectual History, Life, and Fiction.”  We expect these talks to provoke a great deal of discussion and debate.  Between the lectures, panels, and networking events we are confident that this conference offers something of interest for everyone.

If you have not yet registered and would like to attend please contact the President of the Conference Organizing Committee, Michelle Brock, at for further information.  We look forward to seeing you in Austin next week.
