Graduate Student Call for Papers
AFTERMATH: Conflicts & Consequences
October 22-23, 2010
University of Georgia
The War & Society Workshop at the University of Georgia invites proposals for a graduate student conference, “AFTERMATH: Conflicts & Consequences,” to be held October 22-23, 2010. The conference will feature a guest lecture by Vikki Bynum (Texas State University-San Marcos, emeritus) and a keynote address by John Mayfield (Samford Unviersity).
In broadly devoting a conference to the subject of war and its aftermath, the University of Georgia’s graduate students hope to bring together a diverse array of scholars of different disciplines and time periods into a productive dialogue that yields fresh comparative perspectives and insights. Papers, therefore, may address the aftermath of any armed conflict, and might cover such topics as homecoming, reconciliation, remembrance, commemoration, veterans’ issues, including physical disabilities and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the effect on families, public responses, the political construction of “victory” and “loss,” and the unintended consequences of belligerency.
Inquiries and submissions should be sent via email to Laura June Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include full contact information, a copy of your C.V., and an abstract of up to 500 words. Submissions are due May 15, 2010. Notifications will be made in early June.
