Call for Papers
The War We Know: Pacific Northwest College Students and Staff Talk About Their War on Terror Experiences
The North Idaho College Department of History invites student and staff papers for a conference on how the war on terror has impacted, or still impacts, their lives, to be held March 13, 2010 in the Molstead Library building at North Idaho College, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
Papers are sought from students/staff who have served in Iraq/Afghanistan, have had their home lives impacted by the service of an immediate family member (or in the case of university staff, impacted by the service of students), are Arab-American dealing with their nation being at war their ancestral culture, or have participated in the anti war movement.
We are not soliciting papers for a political platform on the merits, one way or the other, on the war. The objective of the symposium is to relate how the war has uniquely impacted college/university communities.
Suggested length of papers is from seven to twelve pages, double spaced, although longer papers will be considered.
The conference committee hopes to collect select submissions for a planned book, with copies provided to everyone whose essay is included in the collection.
Please submit completed papers, not abstracts, to Dr. James Jewell, via email at (firstname.lastname@example.org), or via ground mail, by January 11, 2010. Include your name and contact information (both telephone number and email address).
