The Liberty University History Department and the National D-Day Memorial Foundation will be hosting a conference on June 5, 2018. While the conference will have a focus on World War II in Film, we welcome a wide array of paper topics and/or panel proposals on World War II topics and aim to create a forum for collegial discourse with scholars and students from various perspectives and academic disciplines. Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals as well. The conference will feature Dr. Don Miller of Lafayette College as its keynote speaker.
The Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association welcomes manuscripts on any facet of the life of Abraham Lincoln, his family, his close associates, or his legacy. Manuscripts that illuminate the historical context in which Lincoln lived and worked and that examine economic, social, or cultural influences that were brought to bear on Lincoln and his contemporaries are also welcome, as are manuscripts that explore how Lincoln's reputation has fared over time in the collective memory of the nation and the world. Pertinent unpublished primary source materials are also welcome.

His men threw the discus and the javelin, and practiced archery on the shore, and their horses, un-harnessed, munched idly on cress and parsley from the marsh, the covered chariots housed in their masters’ huts. Longing for their warlike leader, his warriors roamed their camp, out of the fight. (lliad, Book II)
