Papers are welcome from a range of disciplines, and may explore any topic or "reading" of the War. Past presentations have included such diverse subject areas as literature, photography, art, newspapers and journalistic history, counterfactual history, battle reenactments, music, politics, battle narratives, guerilla warfare, film, historiographical issues, women's narratives, war games, secession politics, African-Americans at war, modern pop culture, battlefield preservation, and material culture. Suggested special topics for this year could include the Confederate Battle Flag controversies, monuments and memory, and the popular cultural legacy of the War.
Acceptance of your paper obligates you to appear and make an oral presentation. Sessions run for ninety minutes, and each presenter receives fifteen minutes to present, depending on the number of papers in each panel. Please plan to stay within this time limit.
