THE BRITISH QUILT STUDY GROUP - call for papers

The British Quilt Study Group invites submissions for original, previously unpublished research covering quilt or related textile study for the 2018 Seminar and inclusion in the journal Quilt Studies.

Contributions can be on any aspect of quilt and textile-related study, both historical and contemporary. Contributions from new researchers are especially welcome.

Papers can be up to a maximum number of 6000 words (excluding endnotes and appendices) in length, and shorter papers between 2000 and 2500 words are also welcomed.

In the first instance, please submit your abstract of approximately 500 words, outlining your area of research indicating primary and secondary sources and the proposed length of your paper. Send your abstract to the Administrator for the Research Panel at research@bqsg.org.uk by 30 November 2017.

Selected papers will be presented at the BQSG seminar to be held in October 2018 (venue to be confirmed). Papers presented at the annual seminar are normally published in the well-respected BQSG journal Quilt Studies. Further details can be found on the BQSG website www.bqsg.quiltersguild.org.uk.

If you are interested in submitting an abstract, but wish to discuss this further please contact the Research Panel for further help and advice together with a copy of the submission guidelines at research@bqsg.org.uk.
