We invite all interested parties to join us for our annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, 21-23 March 2013.
We have two splendid keynote speakers this year. Dr. Carole Levin, Willa Cather Professor of History at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will present “Queens in Early Modern English Nationalist and Religious Discourse and Fantasy.” Professor Debra Barrett-Graves, currently Vice President of both The South Central Renaissance Conference and The Queen Elizabeth I Society, will speak on “Spenser’s Emblematics in The Shepheardes Calender.”
First, go to the SCRC website http://www.scrc.us.com/abstractform.shtml and fill out the abstract submission form, making sure to choose “Queen Elizabeth I Society” in the “Send abstract to which organization” field. Please note that the conference organizers require two versions of your abstract: a longer one (3000 characters/500 words max) and a shorter one (750 characters/125 words max), as well as a brief bio (350 characters max). We also recommend that you click on the “abstract confirmation request” link at the bottom of the page.
Second, after you have submitted the online form to SCRC, send a brief email giving the title of the paper and the date you submitted the abstract to the President of QEIS, Brandie Siegfried, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that papers are limited to 20 minutes.
