The Wisconsin World War I Centennial Commission is pleased to announce a call for papers for a two-day international conference, World War 100: A Centennial Symposium. Marking the centenary of the entry of the United States into the war, this conference brings together scholars from myriad fields to examine the legacies of the war in its global, imperial, national, and local dimensions. We invite proposals on a broad range of topics on the cultural, social, and political dimensions of the conflict and from a variety of disciplinary and professional perspectives. We particularly encourage papers that are interpretive in nature and that engage the numerous ways in which the war has continued to inform global and local experiences in the past century. Special programming will be dedicated to the war’s effects on Wisconsin and Wisconsin’s contributions to the war.
The conference will take place on the weekend of October 27-28, 2017, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Featured speakers include Bruno Cabanes (Ohio State University), Holly Case (Brown University), Jennifer Keene (Chapman University), and Michael Neiberg (Army War College). Limited travel support, particularly for graduate students, may become available at a later date.
No later than May 1st, please send a title, a brief description of the paper (up to 250 words), and a two-page vitae to: email@example.com. Panel and roundtable proposals should include an additional rationale for the panel as a whole.
