The United States Commission on Military History (USCMH) solicits papers for presentation at the 39th annual Congress of the International Commission of Military History (ICMH), meeting in Turin, Italy, between September 1 and September 6, 2013.
The theme of this 75th anniversary ICMH Congress, hosted by the Italian Commission of Military History, is “Combined and Joint Operations in the History of Warfare.” Papers should address what are today termed “Combined,” that is, multinational, or “Joint,” meaning inter-service, themes.
On behalf of the International Commission, the USCMH solicits papers on these themes for presentation at the Congress. All American presenters at the Torino meeting must be members of the U.S. Commission, and must apply through it to receive consideration. The U.S. Commission also offers up to two travel stipends in the amount of $1,500 to young scholars presenting in Turin. The Italian Commission is offering doctoral candidates reduced rates for registration and hotel accommodation and will publish a volume of proceedings following the Congress.
To submit your paper proposal for consideration, please forward the following to USCMH Vice-President, Dr. Randy Papadopoulos, at: firstname.lastname@example.org:
- a one page paper proposal outlining the topic and prospective sources, along with an outline of theoretical or methodological approach
- a short (1/2-page) professional resume
The deadline for submissions is 1 March 2013. In addition, final versions of the papers must be delivered to the Italian Commission for translation no later than June 2013.
