British Commonwealth & Postcolonial Studies Conference Committee:

Minutes for Meeting of 8-31-16

Members Present: Gautam Kundu, Joe Pellegrino, Dustin Anderson, Marc Cyr (chair)

We confirmed our Keynote and Featured speakers: The Keynoter will be Clair Willis, and Irish specialist coming to us from Princeton, and the Featured speaker will be Wail S. Hassan, from U of I at Urbana-Champaign, who will speak on Arabic literature.

The conference will be held at the DeSoto Hilton, February 17-18.

We confirmed our venue arrangements and decided we were ready to send out our Call for Papers.

Anderson asked Cyr if he had been receiving more pressure from Provost Bartels to renew our relationship with Continuing Education, which we ended three years ago. Cyr said he had not.

We decided to ask Dan Pioske to join our committee, our thinking being that direct Religious Studies involvement can be a benefit.
