Beyond the Western Front: the forgotten theatres, contingents and campaigns of the First World War
11th - 12th October 2014
Call for papers - 11th-12th October 2014 - National University of Ireland, Maynooth.
Proposals are invited for papers for the third international conference hosted by the Centre for Military History and Strategic Studies. This conference will take place in National University of Ireland, Maynooth, on 11th-12th October 2014.
The conference organisers want to bring together academics and independent scholars working on military operations beyond the Western Front and also on the forces that served in these less well-known campaigns of the First World War. Submissions are encouraged from, but not confined to, those working on the African, Baltic, Balkan, Italian, and Eastern Fronts, and Middle Eastern campaigns, as well as those in the service of colonial troops.
During the conference the Centre for Military History & Strategic Studies, in co-operation with the National Museum of Ireland, will host an exhibition of material related to these campaigns.
We have already received expressions of interest from several international scholars. The conference organisers welcome proposals for panels and individual papers. There will be a panel devoted to new researchers. Proposals for roundtable discussions and poster sessions are also welcome. The centre is a member of the Imperial War Museum’s First World War Centenary Partnership.
Submissions of not more than 200 words should be submitted by 30th April 2014 along with a brief biographical statement to Dr David Murphy at the Centre for Military History & Strategic Studies, National University of Ireland, Maynooth. Email: David.Murphy@nuim.ie
