The United States Commission on Military History (USCMH) invites U.S. graduate students (those enrolled in a Ph.D. program but not yet awarded the Ph.D.) to submit papers for the 2011 congress of the International Commission of Military History (ICMH) to be held at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 28 August - 2 September 2011. The theme of the congress will be “Decolonization: Colonial Wars and Independence Wars from the 18th Century to Today.” In order to promote the participation of emerging scholars, the US Commission is offering a travel subvention of up to $1,500, and the hosting Brazilian Commission has agreed to provide a subvention covering all registration and lodging expenses of those graduate students who are selected to present papers at the congress. The successful graduate student candidate will submit an original piece of research, such as a seminar paper. Selected students will present their papers before an international audience of military historians from around the world and their papers will be published as part of the annual ICMH conference proceedings. Send copies of a one page description of the project, draft copy of the paper, and a CV by email not later than 15 March 2011 to James K. Hogue, Associate Professor of History, UNC-Charlotte and Vice President of the USCMH, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
