British Commission for Military History: New Researchers' Conference


Call for Papers, deadline – 19 August 2022

This conference, organised by the British Commission for Military History in association with the Politics and Contemporary History department at the University of Salford, intends to showcase the breadth and depth of current research being undertaken by postgraduate and early career historians in the field of military history, broadly defined and without restriction as to period or region.

Following hot on the heels of the hugely successful 2021 Conference held at the National Army Museum, the annual British Commission for Military History’s New Researchers’ Conference provides a forum for those who are engaged in postgraduate and early career research in military history and its related disciplines to present their work in a constructive and supportive environment, as well as enabling them to network with other historians. We particularly welcome proposals on traditional aspects of military history, such as strategy, tactics, and technology, encompassing war on land, at sea, and in the air. However, we are also keen to attract PGRs and ECRs engaging in different methodologies and researching more divergent themes, including (but not limited to) cultural representations of conflict, and the impact of war upon particular sections of society, such as race, gender, and sexuality.

The conference will take place at the University of Salford’s MediaCityUK campus, located at the heart of the Salford Quays alongside the BBC and ITV studios, and the Imperial War Museum North:

Proposals (c. 300 words) for papers of 20 minutes in length should be submitted to the conference organiser Dr Brian Hall at by 19 August 2022.
