The Society of Military History will hold its 70th Annual Meeting at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, May 1-4 2003. The conference theme is "The Military and Society During Domestic Crisis." The Program Committee especially invites proposals for papers and panels that address the role of professional military forces, citizen-soldiers, and civilians during domestic disturbances, insurrections, terrorist acts, natural disasters, national emergencies, civil wars, revolutions, epidemics, and other crises that involve civil-military affairs and relations. This theme will allow participants to incorporate military history with topics that are of interest to historians and individuals working in the public policy arena. As always, proposals for papers and panels treating all aspects of military history are welcome.
Proposals should include a one-page abstract for each paper, outlining topic, thesis, and sources, and a brief c.v. for all participants. The program committee intends to post the abstracts on the SMH Web site, http://www.smh-hq.org. The committee welcomes volunteers to serve as chairs and/or commentators. Volunteers are asked to provide a brief c.v.
Please submit proposals for papers and full panels no later than October 1, 2002.
