The Many Faces of War V: An annual interdisciplinary symposium on the experience and impact of war throughout history
October 17th-18th, 2019 at South Dakota State University
This annual interdisciplinary conference aims to address both the experience and impact of war for those fighting as well as for those on the periphery of combat.
The conference is aimed equally at postgraduate students, researchers in the early stages of their careers and established academics. There are no specific geographical or temporal parameters regarding the subject matter of papers, and scholars and students of ancient, medieval and modern warfare are encouraged to submit proposals. We would also encourage the proposal of panels of three papers.
This year we encourage a focus on veterans and associated studies or experiences. Suggested topics are: PTSD; the social stigma of retreat or cowardice; social security systems for war widows and orphans; the effect of training on a soldier’s mindset and actions (before, during and after combat); the social position of soldiers and veterans; literature and poetry of war; the art and architecture of war and remembrance.
Proposals/abstracts should be no longer than 250 words and should be sent to:
Graham Wrightson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The deadline for submission of proposals is August 31st, 2019.
