St. Cloud State University CFP 22nd Annual Northern Plains Conference on Early British Literature

On April 4-5, 2014, St. Cloud State University will host the twenty-second annual Northern Plains Conference on Early British Literature in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The organizers invite papers on literary-critical, theoretical, and pedagogical subjects concerning texts written in Britain from the Middle Ages through the early nineteenth century. This conference has traditionally served as a lively venue for encouraging collaboration and the sharing of works in progress. Professor Rebecca Krug of the University of Minnesota will give the keynote address.

If you are interested in attending (and we hope that you are!), please send a 250-word abstract for a twenty-minute paper to Glenn Davis (<>) by February 3, 2014. Panel proposals are also welcome.

We have reserved a block of rooms at the newly renovated Le St. Germain Suite Hotel ( that are available at a conference rate of $89/night. The hotel is in downtown St. Cloud and within easy walking distance of campus. We will post information about registration to our website ( as it becomes available, though we anticipate a fee of $80, which will include breakfast, lunch, and a banquet dinner on Friday; breakfast and lunch on Saturday; and coffee breaks throughout the conference.
