Military History Consortium
1st Annual Conference
7/8 June 2024
Professor Tarak Barkawi (Johns Hopkins University)
‘War Experience and the Production of Military History: The US in Korea, 1950-51’
Call for Papers
The Military History Consortium (MHC) will be holding its first annual conference on 7/8 June 2024 at Lancaster University in the United Kingdom. The organising committee invites panel and individual paper proposals on any aspect of military history and the history of war and conflict in its broadest sense, ranging from ancient to modern times and spanning the entire globe. This includes the interactions between political, economic, social, and cultural history with military history. In line with the MHC’s aims, panels and papers that cover periodically and geographically under-represented areas, e.g. Antiquity and the Global South, are especially welcomed. A key aim of the MHC is also to provide a platform for and support the development of early career scholars, and therefore submissions from PhD students and postdocs are strongly encouraged.
Panel proposals should consist of:
- 3 papers and 1 chair/discussant
- 500 words rationale and presentation of the panel
- 300 words abstract for each paper
- 150 words short bio for each contributor
Individual paper proposals should consist of:
- 300 words abstract
- 150 words short bio
The submission deadline is 1 November 2023. The organising committee will inform potential participants on whether or not their paper has been accepted by 30 November 2023.
Please send your submissions as pdf or word documents by email to Dr Evert Kleynhans (email@example.com) and Professor Marco Wyss (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The MHC connects institutions, academics, and students engaged in the study of warfare and/or military organisations in the past. Its dual aim is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in order to strengthen international research cooperation, and a framework for joint teaching initiatives and programmes. The MHC’s membership is international, and its scope is global. While the consortium’s teaching and research agendas focus on the past, it seeks to address contemporary security challenges and inform related policy debates. It is only the study of war and the military in the past that enables us to understand and contextualise the present and thus prepare for the future.

Fort Ticonderoga Seminar on the American Revolution
September 20-22, 2024
In 2024, Fort Ticonderoga embarks on our multi-year commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution. Fort Ticonderoga seeks to explore both the local and global events of the Revolutionary War, through new exhibits, programs, and the beginning of our unique REAL TIME REVOLUTION™ interpretive experience.
In 2024, the museum opens a new Exhibition, A Revolutionary Anthology, displaying material from Fort Ticonderoga’s unparalleled collection to explore the breadth of the revolutionary experience through its material culture. Beginning in 2024, the contents of this exhibition will change annually to reflect a series of interpretive themes designed to focus on aspects of the Revolutionary era, its participants, events, and repercussions.
The first of these installations explores the theme Power of Place. The American Revolution and the War of Independence played out across a vast geography. The Revolution made an impact in all corners of the world, far from political centers or even the combatant nations; but the specific history and geography of places in North America like Ticonderoga channeled and condensed this revolutionary human activity. This concentrated people, actions, and events in unique ways. Geography, topography, and hydrology shaped the Revolutionary struggle in profound ways that gave places far from population centers profound significance for political and military events that had a lasting effect on individuals and nations and whose remains can still be traced across the land to this day.
The Fort Ticonderoga Museum seeks proposals for our twentieth annual Seminar on the American Revolution. We encourage papers from established scholars, graduate students, and others related to the theme Power of Place, and are especially interested in papers that engage with the geography of the Revolutionary world. This can be in terms of military campaigns, archaeology, biography, cartography, or regional histories, across any number of disciplines that address the period and places of the global American War for Independence.
Selected submissions on the theme Power of Place may be published in the subsequent volume of the Bulletin of the Fort Ticonderoga Museum. In print since 1927, the Bulletin is the museum’s venerable publication and will embark upon a thematic series of volumes mirroring the themes of our 250th anniversary commemoration to preserve in print new research on the period for posterity. Submitting an abstract for consideration for publication is not required, and we welcome abstracts for papers alone, or for publication.
Sessions are 30 minutes in length followed by 10 minutes for audience questions. Fort Ticonderoga may provide speakers with partial travel reimbursement. Please submit a 300-word abstract and CV by email by October 31, 2023, to Richard M. Strum, Director of Academic Programs: email@example.com
Submitters wishing to be considered for publication should additionally submit a draft copy of their paper with their abstract and CV, by January 5, 2024, to Richard M. Strum, Director of Academic Programs: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions for the Bulletin should review our style sheet and guidelines here: https://www.fortticonderoga.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Style-Sheet-Bulletin.pdf. Papers may range from 4,000-8,000 words. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to publish any copyrighted material, and for bearing the costs of obtaining or reproducing illustrations. Accepted authors will have free access to illustrations from Fort Ticonderoga’s collections. Submissions receive peer-review after an initial screening.
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
All Roads Lead to Gettysburg:
A Conference Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy, Temple University
Friday-Saturday, April 5-6, 2024, Temple University, Philadelphia
Deadline for applications: October 15, 2023
The Battle of Gettysburg, July 1-3, 1863, ranks as the most famous battle in U.S. history, and with good reason. Involving an estimated 160,000 soldiers (85,000 Union and 75,000 Confederate), it was the largest engagement waged in the Western Hemisphere, and it produced up to 51,000 casualties. Devotees herald Gettysburg as the Civil War’s turning point, but that ignores the fact that the following year witnessed even more bloodletting than 1863, and the mounting carnage came close to sapping the Union’s will to continue to crush the Confederacy.
Nevertheless, Gettysburg has acquired an allure that surpasses that of all other Civil War battles. That stems from its size, the many dramatic incidents that spelled the difference between victory and defeat, and the moving words Abraham Lincoln uttered while consecrating the battlefield’s national cemetery. Gettysburg became a mecca for veterans, their descendants, and generations of students.
It is widely believed that more has been written about Gettysburg than any other American battle. That begs the question, Is there anything new to be said about that three-day orgy of mass murder? Judging from scholarship over the past generation, the answer is yes. Some scholars provide fresh insights into military issues that have dominated Gettysburg debates. Others have tapped political and social history to tell us more about the men who clashed on that hallowed ground. Gettysburg’s popularity as a tourist attraction has also inspired a series of memory and material culture studies. While the guns may have fallen silent, historians continue to exchange verbal salvoes over Gettysburg’s history and meaning.
The Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy (CENFAD) at Temple University, along with its co-sponsors (the Temple History and Political Science Departments and the Society for Military History), will hold a 24-hour conference bringing together scholars of Gettysburg. We welcome all scholars to submit individual paper proposals that address any theme related to the battle of Gettysburg. Among these are:
· Strategies and tactics
· Military leaders
· Lincoln, rhetoric, and politics
· Ordinary soldiers
· Cultural or social issues
· Gettysburg after 1863
· Material culture
· Park history
To submit a paper, please send by October 15, 2023, two Word or PDF attachments to Joseph Johnson (not Johnston!) at email@example.com:
1) A maximum 300-word description of your paper, with a title, followed by your full contact information. If your institution can cover your travel or lodging costs, please include this information in this document after your description.
2) A 2-page CV that includes your affiliation and your most prominent publications, if any.
Undergraduate or graduate students are welcome to apply, and CENFAD especially welcomes applications from underrepresented groups. The conference will take place over 24 hours on April 5-6, 2024, at the Center City campus in downtown Philadelphia, starting with an evening event on Friday and panels in the morning and afternoon on Saturday. For accepted applicants/presenters, CENFAD will cover travel to Philadelphia and lodging for Friday night if their home institutions cannot. Accepted applicants will be notified in November.
Everyone is welcome to attend the conference.
Please direct any questions to CENFAD Director Alan McPherson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Co-sponsored by Clements Center for Southwest Studies at Southern Methodist University and the Arizona Historical Society co-organized by Catharine R. Franklin (Texas Tech University), Maurice Crandall (Arizona State University), and Lance R. Blyth (United States Air Force Academy)
The so-called “Indian Wars,” once the subject of great interest by scholars, have become practically the exclusive domain of popular historians. If, as recent work suggests, we cannot understand U.S. history without understanding American Indian history then it follows that we cannot understand Native history without understanding the conflicts between Indigenous groups and the United States. We believe that it is time to “rethink” the Indian Wars—the series of armed clashes in which Native peoples sought to defend their land (at times with the aid of Indigenous allies) from Euroamerican encroachment. By emphasizing Indigenous agency and acknowledging the limitations of an approach that stresses only the power of the U.S. federal government, we seek to complicate this story.
This symposium invites scholars to think about the Indian Wars in new ways. We embrace a broad geographical, chronological, and thematic frame, stretching across the North American continent from the pre-colonial to the post-Reconstruction eras and beyond. We seek proposals drawing upon the fields of borderlands history, legal history, environmental history, Native history, ethnohistory, and military history, as well as anthropology, archaeology, and security studies, among others, while emphasizing such topics as territoriality, sovereignty, diplomacy, economy, peacemaking, politics, violence, conflict, strategy, and memory, along with specific campaigns and battles.
We encourage submissions from graduate students, early and mid-career scholars, scholars without a university affiliation, and especially Indigenous scholars. Several senior scholars have already agreed to participate, including Ari Kelman, Darren Parry, and Sherry Smith. We expect that all those chosen will work and re-work their contributions in order to place them in dialogue with each other. We will pursue an aggressive publishing schedule to ensure the timely release of the edited volume.
Proposals consisting of a one-page CV and a 500-word description of the chapter emphasizing how it fits the theme should be sent to email@example.com by September 15, 2023; all participants will be notified of their status by November 1, 2023. First drafts of the chapters, consisting of roughly 5,000 words (exclusive of notes), will be due on September 1, 2024. The symposium will meet at SMU’s satellite campus in Taos, NM in October 2024, and then again at a second meeting and public presentation in Tempe, AZ in April 2025.
Please direct any questions to Lance Blyth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CALL FOR PAPERS
THE SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION (SAR) Annual Conference on the American Revolution
The American Revolution: War on the Waters
Norfolk, VA June 7-9, 2024
The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) invite proposals for papers to be presented at the SAR Annual Conference on the American Revolution. The conference shall examine and consider the influence of maritime operations on the course of the war and American independence. Alfred Thayer Mahan, America’s foremost authority on naval history and strategy in the late-19th century and early-20th centuries, seemed conflicted on the importance of the war at sea from 1775 to 1783. In 1913, his The Major Operations of the Navies in the War for Independence was published as part of his sea-power series. Mahan focused singularly on operations between the great naval powers of the time, ignoring contributions Americans made at sea. His indifference to America’s role was intentional; Mahan’s point was to emphasize the importance of fleet-centric warfare and capital ships, not to celebrate naval operations which were limited to guerre de course.
This conference seeks to use a wider lens to assess maritime operations during the War for Independence, while also opening new inquiries and research methodologies on the subject. Some questions include but are not limited to: maritime operations and the sea power-continental power debate, the influence of geographic and environmental factors on naval operations and the globalization of the war, the contribution of American privateers, Continental Navy and Marine operations, the slave trade during the war, contingency and the war at sea, the West Indies as a distraction to British political objectives, Royal Navy tactical doctrine and decision-making, and the contribution of American sailors and marines to the creation of an “American” identity.
The SAR invites paper proposals from graduate students, scholars, public history practitioners, and members of other disciplines who wish to contribute to the body of knowledge. Proposals should include a 200-word abstract and concise (maximum 2-page) CV. Proposals should be submitted by September 15, 2023 to Dr. C.C. Felker at email@example.com with the subject line “2024 SAR Annual Conference Proposal.” Notification of acceptance will be given by October 1, 2023.
Publication of accepted papers, following revisions, in an edited volume with a major university press is anticipated after the conference. To ensure the process moves expeditiously, authors are required to submit their full-length articles of approximately 8,000 words two months prior to the conference itself. The SAR will be pleased to cover presenters’ travel and lodging expenses, as well as provide a $500 honorarium.

CALL FOR PAPERS
The Society of Civil War Historians will host its biennial conference at the Sheraton Raleigh in Raleigh, North Carolina, from June 19-22, 2024. It seeks to promote the study of the American Civil War era and to bring greater coherence to the field by encouraging the integration of social, military, political, and public history. The SCWH welcomes proposals that speak to any chronological or thematic aspect of the Civil War era, defined broadly as including the era of slavery and westward expansion through Reconstruction and its aftermath. This year, we especially welcome work that addresses the legacies of the Civil War era in later generations, including our own time, and papers or panels that seek to bridge the gaps between military history and other subfields, especially African American history. We hope to engage academic historians, graduate students, independent scholars, and professionals who interpret history in museums, national parks, archives, and other public history sites.
The deadline for receipt of proposals is September 15, 2023. Proposals should be submitted online at https://scwh.memberclicks.net/conference-proposals-2024-. Although non-members may submit proposals, participants in the conference must be members of the SCWH at the time of the conference. (For more information about membership, go to https://scwh.memberclicks.net/membership.)
Proposals for complete panels should include a title and overview (approximately 250-300 words), a one paragraph abstract of each paper, and a one-paragraph biography of each participant. Proposals for roundtables should include a title and overview along with one-paragraph biographies of each participant. Proposals for single papers should include a title, one-paragraph abstract, and one paragraph biography. Email addresses must be provided for each participant.
We also welcome proposals that depart from the traditional panel format and instead experiment with other forms, such as workshops, roundtables, or other means of engaging with the audience. Due to the excessively high costs of providing computers and projectors—well over $1000 per day per room— if you request technology please explain the value it adds to each presentation.
We further encourage panels to include participants of different racial and ethnic backgrounds, genders, and varying levels of professional rank. We also welcome panels that include diversity of thought, including interdisciplinary approaches.
Direct queries to program committee chair Timothy Williams at email@example.com.

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTORS
From Balloons to Drones
Established in 2016, From Balloons to Drones is an online platform that seeks to provide analysis and debate about air power history, theory, and contemporary operations in their broadest sense including space and cyber power. Air power is to be understood broadly, encompassing not only the history of air warfare, including social and cultural aspects but also related fields such as archaeology, international relations, strategic studies, law and ethics.
Since its emergence during the First World War, air power has increasingly become the preferred form of military power for many governments. However, the application and development of air power is controversial and often misunderstood. To remedy this, From Balloons to Drones seeks to provide analysis and debate about air power through the publication of articles, research notes, commentary and book reviews.
From Balloons to Drones welcomes and encourages potential submissions from postgraduates, academics, and practitioners involved in researching the subject of air power. Submissions can take the following forms:
- Articles – From Balloons to Drones publishes informative articles on air power that range from historical pieces to the analysis of contemporary challenges. These well-researched articles should attempt to bridge a gap between the specialist and non-specialist reader. They should be around c.1,000 to 1,500 words, though From Balloons to Drones will accept larger pieces and we reserve the right to publish them in parts.
- Air War Books – From Balloons to Drones publishes a series of review articles that examine the top ten books that have influenced writers on air power.
- Commentaries – From Balloons to Drones publishes opinion pieces on recent news on either contemporary or historical subjects. These should be no longer than c.1,000 words.
- Research Notes – From Balloons to Drones publishes research notes related to contributor’s current research projects. These take the form of more informal pieces and can be a discussion of a source or a note on a recent research theme. These should be c.500 to 1,000 words.
- Book Reviews – From Balloons to Drones publishes occasional book reviews that aim to be an accessible collection of appraisals of recent publications about air power.
Submissions should be submitted in Word format and emailed to the address below with ‘SUBMISSION’ in the subject line. Also, please include a 50-100 word biography with your submission. References can be used, and please be careful to explain any jargon. However, if you are not sure if your idea fits our requirements, then please email us with ‘POTENTIAL SUBMISSION’ in the subject line to discuss.
If you are interested in contributing, please email our editor, Dr Ross Mahoney, at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our webpage here:- https://balloonstodrones.com/
CALL FOR ARTICLES
International Bibliography of Military History
of the International Commission of Military History
Published by Brill (Leiden and Boston)
In existence since 1978, the International Bibliography of Military History (IBMH) has traditionally published historiographical articles, review articles, and book reviews. Since its recent move to Brill, however, it has been undergoing a transformation into a fully-fledged military history journal. As a next step in this process, the portfolio will be enlarged to include also original research articles.
The IBMH thus invites scholars to submit articles on any military historical topic that can appeal to an international readership, e.g. a topic involving more than one nation and, preferably, based on multi-archival research. There is no chronological limitation. The journal publishes articles ranging from antiquity to the contemporary period, as long as the research method is historical.
The articles should be based extensively on primary research, not have been published in another form or outlet, and not currently be considered by another journal. The submitted work should be between 8,000 and 10,000 words (including footnotes), and be thoroughly referenced. For further information on style and referencing, please visit the journal’s website.
Submitted articles will – after a first editorial screening – be sent out for peer-review (double-blind). This process, from submission to decision, normally takes six to eight weeks. Please submit your article directly to the Scientific Editor, Dr Marco Wyss (email@example.com), who is also available for any potential preliminary queries.
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
The Council on America’s Military (CAMP) past is calling for papers for its Journal. We welcome submissions of interesting, original articles on American military history, especially topics that deal with significant sites (which could include installations, battlefields, ships and airplanes). We also welcome articles on biography and historic preservation, especially if they are related to particular sites. Maps and photos are strongly encouraged. We ask that authors submit manuscripts by e-mail to our editors, using a system that is compatible with Microsoft Word. The length of the articles that we publish varies roughly between 2,500 and 7,500 words. The author is responsible for obtaining permission to publish any copyrighted material, and for bearing the costs of obtaining or reproducing illustrations. Interested parties should refer to the CAMP website or contact the editor, Vincent Rospond at EditorJamp@yahoo.com.
A non-profit educational association, CAMP was founded in 1966, representing diverse professions from historians to archeologists, museologists to architects, engineers to authors, active and retired military of all ranks, genealogists to archivists, and just plain hobbyists, the Council on America’s Military Past has only one requirement for membership: commitment to its objectives.
Its focus is on the places and things from America’s military past, and their stories. CAMP looks to all types of military and naval posts, from stockade forts of early New England to adobe presidios of the Southwest, from temporary camps and battlegrounds of a military on the move, to elaborate coastal defense installations along America’s coastlines. For CAMP, old ships and airplanes are also posts.
The Journal of America’s Military Past is a scholarly publication with interesting, illustrated articles on historic posts and battlefields and their people. The journal includes a robust book review section that, by itself, makes it worth reading. It is published three times a year.
