CALL FOR PAPERS
Northern Great Plains History Conference
27-29 September 2012
The Society for Military History sponsors sessions at the NGPHC. We encourage graduate students as well as faculty, government, and independent historians to submit proposals for papers or sessions. We view “military history” in much the way the Journal of Military History views the subject. The SMH Conference Coordinator works closely with the Conference Program Chair to ensure the strongest possible conference. We coordinate session development and scheduling.
The SMH and the First Division Musesum, Cantigny, co-sponsor the SMH-FDMC prize for the best paper by a graduate student in military history, valued at $400. Instructions for submission will accompany acceptance of your proposal.
The NGPHC sponsors a separate graduate paper prize. The SMH and FDMC sponsor the SMH-FDMC prize for the best paper by an undergraduate student in history, valued at $200. The Conference Program Chair, Dr. Mark Harvey, Mark.Harvey @ ndsu.edu, handles these prizes. Contact Dr. Harvey for more information on the general conference, or to submit a proposal that is not within military history. The NGPHC welcomes graduate and undergraduate students, and faculty, government historians, and independent scholars.
In addition to a full slate of sessions, the SMH sponsors a lunch and, following the end of the conference, a tour, and a dining-out on Saturday afternoon. This year, the tour will be to the “Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile State Historic Site” which actually consists of two sites telling the story of the Cold War years in North Dakota. They are the Oscar-Zero Missile Alert Facility and the November-33 Launch Facility. They are the last remnants of the 321st Missile Wing.
Please send a one page paper proposal and c.v. or, for a full session proposal, send a one page session proposal, and a one page abstract for each paper, and c.v.s for all participants, to:
jcfitzharris @ stthomas.edu by 1 April 2012.
