New Research in Military History: A Conference for Postgraduate and Early Career Historians

26th November 2016
Institute of Historical Research, Senate House, London

This conference, organised by the British Commission for Military History in association with the University of Sussex and the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, intends to highlight current research being undertaken by postgraduate and early career scholars in the field of military history and related disciplines.

This is the British Commission for Military History’s seventh annual New Research Conference giving postgraduate and early career scholars an excellent opportunity to meet, share new ideas and discuss the latest research.

The conference theme focuses on change in war, innovation and society. This might include matters relating to military organisations, technology and culture as well subjects concerned with strategy, tactics and social change. Proposals that move beyond solely British issues and engage global, colonial and post-colonial perspectives are particularly encouraged.

The conference organisers will also be very happy to receive papers on other topics related to military history, broadly defined, including those that deal with gender, society, identity and race.

Proposals (c. 300 words) for papers of 20 minutes should be submitted, along with an academic CV, to the organisers at bcmhnrc@gmail.com by Sunday 31st July 2016. The organisers welcome proposals for panel submissions as well as individual papers.

Contributors will automatically be considered for publication in a special issue of the British Journal for Military History.
