In the wake of the bicentenary commemorations of the Napoleonic Wars, the British Commission for Military History is proud to host an all-new conference on this momentous era, presenting fresh research both on the conflict itself and its manifold repercussions for Britain, Europe and the wider world. The keynote speakers are Dr Catriona Kennedy (University of York) and Dr Edward Coss (U.S. Army Command and General Staff College).
Proposals for 20-minute papers are welcomed on topics relating to the social, economic, political or military dimensions of the epoch of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. In keeping with BCMH’s commitment to supporting highquality research from well-informed commentators, abstracts are sought from both those of academic and non-academic backgrounds. The conference organisers also look forward to receiving proposals from postgraduate researchers and MA students. Undergraduates with an interest in the period are encouraged to submit proposals for five-minute presentations to receive a unique opportunity to discuss their research in a supportive environment with experts at the forefront of their field.
Abstracts of 300 words should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the applicant’s name, an indication of their presentation preference (full paper or five minute presentation) and a short (maximum 200 word) biography. The deadline for submissions is Friday 24th May 2019.
Location: Kings College London, Strand, London
