The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, will host the 72nd meeting of the Society for Military History. The conference will take place February 24-27, 2005 in historic Charleston, South Carolina.
The theme of the conference will be the Rise of the Military Profession. The Program Committee seeks papers and panels that deal with the origins and growth of military professionalism. Other related topics might examine military professionalism and its connections to ideology, cultural context, politics, education, and business professionalism. Comparative studies of different nations, services, and branch components are also encouraged. Although the conference will focus on military professionalism, the Program Committee also desires papers and panels dealing with any facet of military history.
Panel proposals must include:
A panel coversheet listing the title of the panel and contact information for all members
A brief overview of the panel highlighting its scholarly contributions
One-page abstracts for each paper
A brief vitae for all members of the panel, including chair persons and commentators.
Individual paper proposals must include a one-page abstract and brief vitae. The Program Committee welcomes volunteers to serve as chair persons and commentators. Volunteers should submit a vitae with their request. All information related to the conference can be found online at: http://citadel.edu/history_dept/
Deadline for this call for papers is September 1, 2004. The Program Committee desires that all proposals be sent electronically by email attachment in Microsoft Word. If this is not possible, hard copies can be sent.
