First World Studies Conference call for papers
"New Directions in First World War Studies" - the International Society for First World War Studies has issued a call for papers for its fourth conference, to be held in Washington, DC, 18 to 20 October 2007. With the support of Georgetown University and the German Historical Institute, this conference is intended to continue, and the release puts it, "the tradition of bringing together current researchers from both the graduate student and established academic scholarly levels. We invite papers from students and scholars who are working on new paradigms or approaches to understanding the social, cultural, or military history of the war. The purpose of the conference is to facilitate a comparative study of the Great War." Applicants are asked to submit a two-page abstract of their proposed paper and a copy of their CV to Jennifer Keene at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mike Neiberg at email@example.com by 1 February 2007 (those accepted will be expected to submit a paper of up to 8,000 words by 1 June 2007). The society's own website provides information on the first three conference.
