The United States Commission on Military History (USCMH) invites U.S. historians 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.” A total of three papers for regular sessions will be selected by the U.S. Commission. In order to promote those who are new to the ICMH (assistant professor or equivalent), the US Commission is offering a travel subvention of up to $1,500 for one junior scholar. Historians selected by the USCMH 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 conference proceedings. Send a two page draft proposal 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.
