We are accepting chapter proposals for an edited book on, “Objects and Frontiers: Between the Mekong and the Indus, 18th to 20th Century”. Objects play an important role in the shaping and practice of historical cultures. One of the dominant approaches to the study of objects has been that of material culture. In addition, objects have also been studied in the context of making or nature of frontiers and borderlands.
Last year, my colleague Dana Cooper and I published an edited collection on Motherhood and War. Based on the success of this work, we have proposed a new project to our publisher – Motherhood in the Ancient World. This suggestion has been warmly received and, as such, we are now seeking submissions from interested authors. We are seeking scholars who address notions of motherhood in ancient Asia.

Fifth Annual Texas Tech University
History Graduate Student Organization Conference
The History Graduate Student Organization at Texas Tech University invites you to join us for our Fifth Annual Graduate Student Conference to be held on the campus of Texas Tech University on February 6, 2016. We invite proposals for individual graduate and undergraduate papers as well as panel presentations for three to five scholars on historical topics.
I am looking for scholars actively conducting research in history or other fields of the humanities (literature, e.g.) that utilize sources in languages other than English. I am specifically looking for 10 to 15 scholars based in the U.S. who use less languages from Eastern Europe and Russia, the Middle East, Asia (east and central), Scandinavia, and Africa. Other scholars are welcome also.
We invite submissions for abstracts to join the panel titled Socialism and Health: Socialism and Health: a Global Exchange of Ideas and Practices for the upcoming meeting of the American Association for the History of Medicine (AAHM) to be held in Minneapolis, April 29-May 1, 2016.
I am assembling a panel for the Society for Military History's Annual Meeting in Ottawa in April 2016, and I need another panelist. The theme of the panel is the ways in which the YMCA or YWCA supported various people groups affected by war around the world (does not necessarily have to relate to involvement with soldiers per se) and/or the collaboration and conflict with wartime governments that occurred as a part of its involvement in wartime.
