The Society for Military History is calling for papers for their 2007 conference. Seems like a natural for the “new” historians.

Call for Papers
Society for Military History
74th Annual Meeting
Frederick, Maryland
April 19-22, 2007

The Catoctin Center for Regional Studies located at Frederick Community College will host the 74th meeting of the Society for Military History. The conference will take place April 19-22, 2007 in historic Frederick, Maryland which is located forty-five miles west of Washington, D.C.

The theme for the conference will be Crossroads of War. The Program Committee seeks papers and panels that address those intersections during the war-time experience between the military and other sectors of society, including, but not limited to, the home-front, the economy, politics and constitutionalism, as well as culture. This topic includes both the impact of the military on society as well as the influence of societal factors in shaping and defining the military experience during war. Although the conference will focus on the Crossroads of War, the Program Committee also desires papers and panels dealing with any facet of military history.

Panel proposals must include: 1) A panel coversheet listing the title of the panel and contact information for all members, 2) A brief overview of the panel highlighting its scholarly contributions, 3) One-page abstracts for each paper, and 4) A brief vitae for all members of the panel, including chairpersons and commentators. Individual paper proposals must include a one-page abstract and brief vitae. The Program Committee welcomes volunteers to serve as chair persons and commentators. Volunteers should submit a vitae with their request. All information related to the conference can be found online at

Deadline for this call for papers is October 15, 2006. The Program Committee prefers that all proposals be sent electronically by e-mail attachment in Microsoft Word. If this is not possible, hard copies can be sent.
