Call for Papers

Transformation and Innovation in the British and Commonwealth Militaries from 1642 to the Present Day

A Symposium for Postgraduate and Early Career Historians

13 April 2011

Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham, Stratford-upon-Avon

This conference, organised by the Centres for First and Second World War Studies at the University of Birmingham, intends to examine the process of transformation and innovation in the British and Commonwealth militaries as recent literature on the subject has highlighted a need to evaluate the process from 1642 to the present day.

We aim to provide an opportunity for postgraduate and early career historians to present their work to a wider audience. Proposals for papers on any aspect of transformation and innovation are welcomed. A CV and proposals (c.300 words) for papers of 20 minutes should be submitted to the organisers at birminghamwarstudies@gmail.com by 10 December 2010.

It is hoped that this conference will be supported by a grant to cover registration costs and travel to the conference. However, speakers are nevertheless encouraged to apply to their host institutions for assistance. We welcome contact from anyone who wishes to attend the conference, which will include a keynote lecture by Professor John Buckley, Chair of Military History at the University of Wolverhampton and a closing address by Professor Gary Sheffield, Chair of War Studies at the University of Birmingham.
