The Society for Military History has issued its call for papers for its 76th Annual Meeting, hosted by Middle Tennessee State University at the Embassy Suites Conference Center in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, from 2 to 5 April 2009. The conference them is "Warfare and Culture" and will, according to the release, "explore relationships between culture (societal, strategic, or organizational) and the development of military policy and institutions, as well as the conduct of combat operations." Submissions on other topics are also quite welcome.
The release also notes: "Panel proposals must include a panel title, contact information for all panelists, a brief description of the purpose and theme of the panel, abstracts of each of the three papers (one paragraph each), brief CVs for all panelists, including commentator and panel chair. Proposals for individual papers are welcome and should include a brief abstract, brief CV, and contact information. All panelists must be Society for Military History members. Deadline for proposals is November 1, 2008. Proposals may be submitted electronically to conference coordinator Derek Frisby (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by regular mail to Derek Frisby, MTSU History Department, Murfreesboro, TN 37132."
I know that in the past, this conference has been quite open to the inclusion of papers on Canadian military history topics.
