Event description
The 28th Northern Plains Conference on Early British Literature will take place at Dordt University in Sioux Center, IA 16-17 April 2021

About this Event

After a blizzard-impacted conference in 2019 and a canceled conference in 2020, we hope to resume our annual meetings. In its third decade offering a convivial and stimulating atmosphere for teachers and scholars of Early British Literature, the conference invites abstracts for 20-minute conference presentations on all aspects of Early British Literature from its beginnings through the 18th Century, including teaching, interpretation, and scholarship. Proposals for complete sessions as well as individual or group presentations are welcome. In honor of our keynote presenter, topics touching on material studies as well as religion are encouraged.

A virtual option will be available for remote presentations and remote participation, should circumstances make them necessary.

Dr. Mark Rankin, Professor of English at James Madison University, has graciously consented to join us after we had to cancel his attendance last spring. His keynote address is titled “The Illustrations of Foxe's Book of Martyrs and their Publication History” Mark’s range of interests and accessibility offer a great opportunity for you (and your students) to participate.

Direct your questions (and paper proposals) to Dr. Bob De Smith (Bob.DeSmith@dordt.edu). Watch for updates on the Conference Website
