Welcome to the Society for Military History
Established in 1933 as the American Military History Foundation, renamed in 1939 the American Military Institute, and renamed again in 1990 the Society for Military History, the Society is devoted to stimulating and advancing the study of military history. Its membership (today more than 2700) has included many of the world's most prominent scholars, soldiers, and citizens interested in military history.
Call for Papers: Young Scholars (BA & MA Students)
The Society for Military History (SMH) is pleased to call for papers for several special sessions by Young Scholars (B.A. and M.A. students) during the 85th Annual Meeting, hosted by the University of Louisville’s College of Arts & Sciences and the Department of History in Louisville, Kentucky.
For the 2018 meeting, the SMH hopes to present several panels or posters by B.A. and M.A. students. The goal of this new initiative is to highlight excellent research by students below the Ph.D.-level and promote them and their work for a future career in our field.
The program committee will consider proposals on all aspects of military history, especially encouraging submissions that reflect on this year’s theme, Landscapes of War and Peace.
All proposals must be submitted by January 15, 2018. For more information, go to the 2018 Young Scholars CFP.
