The Second Military Oral History Conference: Between Memory and History
Victoria, BC, Canada, 5-7 May 2010
The DEADLINE for paper submissions is 15 January 2010
The History Department of the University of Victoria is pleased to invite proposals for the Second Military Oral History Conference to be held in Victoria, BC on 5-7 May 2010. The intention of the conference is to bring together senior undergraduate and graduate students, academics and veterans working in a variety of fields in military history in order to foster discussion in a multi-disciplinary environment. Papers addressing all facets of military history which rely heavily upon oral history will be considered. This includes, but is not limited to, the writing of popular military history, official history, operational history, military families and the home front, First Nations, Military Medicine, records management and archival preservation. We encourage a broad interpretation of the conference theme from a variety of fields and backgrounds.
Proposals are welcome from all scholars, but senior undergraduate and graduate students are especially encouraged to submit. We also encourage submissions from community scholars, independent scholars, archivists and librarians working in the field.
Proposals should not exceed 250 words and should be accompanied by a short biographical sketch. The proposal must outline how it fits with the conference theme - i.e., military oral history.
We welcome submissions of complete sessions.
The deadline for submissions is 15 January 2010.
Subsidies for students, to offset some of the costs associated with travel to the conference, are available.
Please submit proposals to Dr. David Zimmerman, Department of History, University of Victoria, P.O. Box 3045, Victoria, B.C., V8W 3P4 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
