Estonian War Museum – General Laidoner Museum calls for papers and panel proposals to a military history conference
Visions of War: Experience, Imagination and Predictions of War in the Past and the Present
Tallinn, 19-20 April 2016
This year’s history conference at the Estonian War Museum will discuss visions of war and predictions of the future in the armed forces, among the security and defence establishment and in society at large. Why have some armed forces been more successful than the others? How should one learn from the past and make accurate predictions? What does it take to innovate successfully? Why should soldiers and security experts learn from civilian visionaries, publicists, writers and even futurologists?
Please send the abstracts of your papers (length up to 4,000 characters) by 29th February 2016 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Panel proposals should include the abstracts of all prospective speakers. We also kindly ask you to send a short, one page CV with an overview of your research so far. The length of presentations will be 20 minutes. The working languages of the conference will be English and Estonian. All the presentations in Estonian will be translated into English and vice versa. Articles based on the presentations will be published in the Estonian Yearbook of Military History in 2017. The Estonian War Museum will cover the travel and accommodation costs of speakers.
