Gilbert White and his Contexts

Proposal Submission

We welcome proposals of up to 300 words for 20-minute papers that explore any aspect of Gilbert White's life, writing, and science, as well as his personal and intellectual contexts. Please complete the form below by midnight GMT on Monday 3 February 2025.

We also welcome proposals for preformed panels of three speakers or roundtable discussions of up to five speakers. Please follow the link below for the panel proposal form.

Please ensure that all appropriate fields are completed. If you are an independent researcher, please simply leave the institution field blank. Your abstract should offer an outline of your main line of argument but you do not need to include detailed references or a bibliography. Your biography will be shared with your panel chair to help them introduce you, should your proposal be accepted. Please use the 'Any Other Information' box to tell us about any access or other needs, and we will be in touch. Data projection will be available, so you don't need to ask for that!

For fairness, we will consider all the proposals together after the deadline passes on 3 February 2025. If, however, you urgently need an early decision in order to apply for funding, please select that option at the end and we will aim to get back to you within ten days. Please only select this option if your need is genuine.
