The National World War II Museum’s Jenny Craig Institute for the Study of War and Democracy in New Orleans is pleased to issue this call for papers for its workshop, “New Directions in World War II History.” This three-day workshop will take place at the Museum on February 22–24, 2023.

The Institute encourages early career historians (ABD through PhD since 2018) to submit proposals related to one of the following themes:

  • The War in Europe
  • The War in the pacific
  • The Home Front in War
  • The Holocaust and Genocide

The selection committee will take a broad view of these four topics and invites applicants with interests in political, social, cultural, economic, military, technological and scientific, and gender history to indicate in their applications which theme or themes best reflect their current research. The goal is to inspire new conversations based on cutting-edge work that will foster a growing community of WWII scholars.

Proposals should include the following in a single PDF file:

  • Abstract with title (300 words max)
  • Brief Curricula Vitae (1-2 pages)

Applicants are to submit their paper proposals through the Asana link:

The deadline for submission is November 20, 2022, at 11:59PM (Central Standard Time).

The National WWII Museum’s mission encourages public engagement. The keynote lecture and all workshop presentations will be recorded and may be made available to the public.

Accepted participants will have three nights’ accommodations at the Higgins Hotel on the Museum campus and travel covered to attend the workshop.

The Jenny Craig Institute for the Study of War and Democracy is a community of scholars forming a national center for research, higher education, publications, and public programming, dedicated to promoting the history of World War II, the relationship between the war and America's democratic system, and the war's coninuted relevance for the world.
