This conference, organised by the British Commission for Military History in association with the History of Warfare Research Group at King’s College London, intends to highlight the breadth and depth of research being undertaken by postgraduate and early career historians in the field of military history.

The British Commission for Military History’s New Research in Military History conference is a recently established forum for those are engaged in research in military history or related disciplines to meet other new and established scholars and to present a paper in a supportive environment. We aim to provide an opportunity for postgraduate and early-career historians to present their work to a wider audience of practising military historians. Papers on any aspect of military history, broadly defined, are welcomed. Proposals (c.300 words) for papers of 20 minutes should be submitted, using the form below, to the organisers at bcmhnewresearchers@gmail.com by 30 September 2011.

The conference will include a keynote lecture by Professor Brian Holden Reid. It will take place at the Strand Campus of King’s College London.

The British Commission for Military History is the pre-eminent association for professional military historians in the UK, dedicated to the promotion and discussion of military history in its broadest sense. This conference is designed to introduce younger scholars to the Commission, whose members will also be in attendance. Participants will be welcome to attend the Commission’s autumn conference to be held at the National Army Museum, Chelsea on Saturday 19th November, on the theme ‘The British National Service Army’.
