The U.S. Army Center of Military History is soliciting papers for the 7--8 August 2002 biennial Conference of Army Historians, to be held in the Washington, D.C., area. This biennial conference has traditionally featured presentations on joint and combined military history as well as papers presented by civilian historians from government and academia. As such, we are very pleased to invite members of the international and academic communities to both attend and present papers on the 2002 theme of “The Cold War Army, 1947—1989.”
Papers may deal with any aspect of the U.S. Army's role during the Cold War and may range from panels on the Cold War in Europe, to include the different perspectives of NATO and Warsaw Pact countries; the war in Vietnam and perspectives of the Pacific nations regarding the U.S. Army; Army training and preparation for the war that never came; and the different societal and cultural issues the Army faced during this sometimes tumultuous 40-year period. These are but some of the topics that may be presented upon.
Presenters should be prepared to speak for 20 minutes. Should the Center of Military History decide to publish the conference papers, the presenters will have an opportunity to submit a formal paper for consideration.
Deadline for submissions is 15 January 2002. Email submissions are acceptable
Further information on the conference location will be forthcoming on the Center of Military History Website.
Prospective participants should send their proposed topics to Dr. Robert Rush, U.S. Army Center of Military at the address below. Dr. Rush may also be contacted by email.
