Call for Papers: Society for Military History at the Missouri Valley History Conference
The 59th Annual Missouri Valley History Conference will be held March 3-5, 2016 in Omaha, Nebraska. The theme for 2016 is “Sacred Sites, Holy Places.” The Society for Military History sponsors a full slate of sessions at the MVHC and also will again be sponsoring a social “huddle” for Society for Military History participants. SMH panels can be related to the theme, but proposals for all types of military history papers are accepted. Individual proposals are welcome and session proposals are encouraged. For individuals, send a one page proposal and short c.v. (only c.v. if volunteering to chair/comment). For sessions, send one-page session proposal, one-page proposal for each paper, and short c.v.’s for all participants. Deadline for proposals is November 6th, 2015. Send proposals, c.v.’s and inquiries to: George Eaton, 2707 E 28th Ct Davenport, IA 52803 or by email at email@example.com. The Society for Military History and the First Division Museum Cantigny sponsors the Kevin J. Carroll award for the best graduate student paper in Military History. This prize is valued at $800 dollars. In addition to the graduate student prize, the Society for Military History and the First Division Museum Cantigny sponsors the Colonel Robert R. McCormick Prize for the Best Undergraduate Paper in Military History, valued at $400. For information on these prizes please send inquiries to George Eaton. For non SMH sponsored panels, please contact the 2016 Program Chair Dr. Martina Saltamacchia, Department of History, University of Nebraska at Omaha, 6001 Dodge Street, Omaha, NE 68182-0213 or firstname.lastname@example.org The website for the conference is at http://www.unomaha.edu/mvhc/index.php
Please note that we are changing the venue and the schedule in 2016. The conference will now be at the Magnolia Hotel, but still in the Old Market area of Omaha. In order to provide more opportunities for working scholars and students, we will now have a full day of sessions on Saturday. There will now be a less formal session on Thursday afternoon, perhaps a workshop, followed by the opening reception and the SMH Huddle. All SMH paper sessions will be Friday and Saturday. Please contact George Eaton if you have questions.
