Society For Military History 87th Annual Meeting

We find ourselves called upon, sometimes, to answer the charge that by studying armed conflict we are glorifying it or condoning it. Because the field was predominantly male for a long time, many of our colleagues assume that it remains so, and is hostile to women. The Society for Military History is a United States–based international organization of scholars who research, write, and teach military history of all time periods and places. It includes naval history, air power history, and studies of technology, ideas, and homefronts. The society was established in 1933 as the American Military History Foundation, renamed in 1939 the American Military Institute, and renamed again in 1990 as the Society for Military History.

We seek to educate future Americans to fully appreciate the sacrifices that generations of American Soldiers have made to safeguard the freedoms of this nation. Through popular media and public discourse in this decade alone, American students have heard about such events as the bicentennials of the Napoleonic Wars and War of 1812, the centennial of the First World War, and the sesquicentennial of the battle of Gettysburg. They realize that in order to fully comprehend the significance of these commemorations, they need a basic historical grounding that can explain why the events mark turning points—and have thus become influential pieces of our contemporary narrative. Students long for intellectual frameworks that help them understand the world in which they live—and the study of war and conflict is an essential part of such frameworks. For instance, it is difficult if not impossible to understand the geo-political fault-lines of the 21st century world if one does not understand the causes and outcomes of the First World War.

The Society for Military History traces its lineage to 1933, when it was founded as the American Military Foundation. Renamed in 1939 as the American Military Institute, it assumed its present designation in 1990. Its international membership, which numbers nearly 2,700, includes many of the most prominent professors, government historians, military personnel, and independent scholars at work in the military history field today. Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide. Forged from a partnership between a university press and a library, Project MUSE is a trusted part of the academic and scholarly community it serves.

Wariness towards the field persists despite its evolution in recent decades. Other historians—for instance those who study slavery, or the history of Native Peoples, or the dictatorship of Josef Stalin—work in fraught spaces without finding themselves the object of suspicion or stereotype. Part of the problem stems from the way that military history is, and has been, identified and categorized inside American popular culture. In addition, combat sheds light on the civil-military relationship within states, and the way that societies are able to leverage technology by setting up organizations and processes to take advantage of it. What happens on the battlefield also influences, and sometimes crafts, key social and political narratives. For instance, the tactical and operational reasons for stalemate on the Western Front matter precisely because this stalemate shaped the human experience of the war, burdened its settlement, and shaped its legacy.

Indeed, many of our young people have no idea of how the US military came to exist in its present form, what tasks it has been called upon to carry out in the past , and what tasks it may be called upon to carry out in the future. Popular television also complicates the lives of academic military historians. “Info-tainment” via commercial media shapes ideas about what military history is, and how its practitioners allocate their time and energy. The academic subfield struggles also to free itself from association with popular writing and popular film that grasps too readily at “great man” theories, triumphalism, nationalism, gauzy sentimentality, or superficial tales of derring do. We face a suspicion that those drawn to the field are mesmerized by the whiz-bang quality of arms technology, or the pure drama of organized violence.

Even as the American people built a large military and handed it vast responsibilities, they devoted less and less time to equipping their future civilian leaders with the knowledge they need to interact with the military in informed and constructive ways. This affects the nation’s ability to develop, implement, and sustain an optimal national security strategy for itself, and to adequately address the great range of crucial issues pertaining to the effects and consequences of war. Our students’ desire for knowledge creates an important opportunity for Departments of History. The late recession has produced a drop in humanities majors as students seek courses that seem more likely to produce an immediate payoff in terms of jobs and wages. Legislative budget cuts have forced even state schools to conform to a tuition-driven model, and departments that cannot attract a sufficient number of students can expect hard times to get harder. University college administrators, particularly college deans and chairs of History Departments, may find some relief in the appeal of military history.

Founded in 1979, we are recognized for covering topics of popular appeal in a serious and scholarly fashion. Among our reading customers especially, McFarland is viewed as distinctive in style, adventurous in range, and a reliable source of worthy books that other publishers overlook. We have about 7000 unique works for sale and each year we publish about 360 new titles.

Society For Military History 87th Annual Meeting

Please be patient as it will take some time for Matt to process the refunds. I don’t think it is news to you that the conference was hanging by a thread, with conditions worsening on a daily basis. States have turned the recent CDC recommendations on limiting group gatherings to 50 persons or less for eight weeks into mandates, along with closing bars, restaurants, and other non-essential businesses. My email to the governor of Pennsylvania that liquor stores ought to be considered essential businesses has yet to be answered.

The Society’s mission is to stimulate and advance the study of military history, and to diffuse knowledge thereof. Its membership includes many of the nation’s most prominent scholars, soldiers, and citizens interested in military history. The society’s latest white paper is “The Role of Military History in the Contemporary Academy” by Tami Davis Biddle and Robert Citino, which chronicles the maturation of the field of military history and assesses its current place in American higher education.

The prize recognizes outstanding essays that use rigorous academic historical study to understand issues relevant to current policymakers. Rob Citino and Tami Davis Biddle, first appeared in print in November 2014 under the auspices of the Society for Military History. Its purpose was to generate discussion of the key role that military history should play within college and university history instruction. Tami Davis Biddle’s views are her own and do not necessarily reflect those of the US Army, Department of Defense, or US Government. 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. We were established in 1983 as a member-based, charitable 501 nonprofit organization.

The stalemate also changed the way that European power was understood and interpreted by those peoples under the yoke of European colonialism in the early part of the 20th century. Some of it will cover esoteric topics that appeal to those with highly particularized interests, such as military uniforms, weapons types, or aircraft markings. Popular military history varies immensely in quality, and there is a great gulf between the best and the worst it has to offer. Outside the subfield, all this work tends to be lumped together, however, and academics with little exposure to serious scholarship in the field may assume that it is a discipline defined by the weaker side of the spectrum. The members of the Society for Military History have a broad and inclusive sense of our work and our educational mission. Our mission encompasses not only traditional studies of battles, but also of war and public memory.

Civilians must respect the requirements of Just War; this is essential not only for the preservation of American leadership in the world, but also for building a foundation on which a stable post-war peace can be built. Just as crucially, civilians must realize that respect for Just War requirements is essential to the mental and emotional health of the soldiers, sailors, and airmen they send to war. The phrase “military history” still stirs conflicted emotions or hostile reactions among those who teach history in the nation’s colleges and universities. Indeed, this fact has convinced some of those who study war to distance themselves from the phrase, or to eschew it altogether.

The Program Committee will organize panels from excellent individualpapersubmissions.Posterswill be presented in a separate poster session during the conference. Students whose submissions have been rejected in the regular CFP are welcome to re-apply for the Young Scholars Sessions. Thanks to the National Defense University’s Joint Forces Staff College , your source for joint professional military education, for hosting this year’s conference. The Society for Military History annual meeting is happening in Norfolk, VA from May.The Society will hold a Live or in-person meeting at the Hilton Main on Main Street, Norfolk and will provide a virtual link to registrants who cannot attend due to COVID concerns or travel restrictions. In addition, civilians need to understand how consistently and tirelessly one must work to align means and ends in war.

Choices about war and peace are made by civilians – civilians who, increasingly, have no historical or analytical frameworks to guide them in making the most consequential of all decisions. They know little or nothing about the requirements of the Just War tradition and the contemporary legal and ethical frameworks that affect jus ad bellum, jus in bello, and jus post bellum. And they do not sufficiently link this fact to the family stresses and emotional wounds that veterans endure.

For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available. A title history is the publication history of a journal and includes a listing of the family of related journals. The most common relationship is to a previous and/or continuing title, where a journal continues publishing with a change to its official title.

Society For Military History 87th Annual Meeting

Soldiers will be fully occupied trying to cope with the intense and ever-changing demands of the battlefield, while civilian policymakers will be fully occupied trying to build and maintain support for national strategy. With both groups working round the clock in their own realms, it is easy for them to begin to drift apart. An intentional and unflagging effort must be devoted to maintaining the ongoing civil-military communication that gives strategy its meaning, and that prevents the nation from engaging in counterproductive or even senseless conflict. This is an unsettling state of affairs, especially since the US military does not send itself to war.

Courses in military history tend to fill, not only with history majors and minors, but also with students from other disciplines who are interested in the field. And because military history intersects regularly with the profession’s other subfields, it can serve as an ideal gateway to the other specializations any given History Department has to offer. It may, as well, lure back some of the students who have been drawn away to political science, international relations, and public policy departments.

But there is a case to be made for retaining and reinvigorating the term, linking it to the body of innovative scholarship that has been produced in recent years, and continues to be produced today. The first step is open communication and exchange between those inside the field and those outside of it. Within the academy, conversation and education ought to be the first steps towards breaking down stereotypes. The short essay that follows will argue the case for integrating a broadened, revitalized military history subfield into history departments nationwide. McFarland is a leading independent publisher of academic and general interest nonfiction books.

I shot a note to the Executive Council this afternoon to begin the discussion about cancellation of the conference, and it did not take long to come to a decision. Finally, I’m sad that we will not have the opportunity this year to gather together as a Society and as a community of scholars to learn, meet and greet old colleagues, and make new acquaintances. Conditions, however, have deteriorated to the point that cancellation is the best option available to us. Any use of military force is so consequential on so many levels that it demands serious contemplation and full comprehension by all those in a democratic polity who own some piece of responsibility for it. When Americans go to war, they do so because they have been sent by the elected leaders of the Republic; they carry the flag of the United States, and wear that flag on the sleeves of their uniforms.

It has over 2,300 members including many prominent scholars, soldiers, and citizens interested in military history. The Journal of Military History, the quarterly journal of the Society for Military History, has published scholarly articles on the military history of all eras and geographical areas since 1937. It publishes articles, book reviews, memoirs, research notes, documents of note, a list of recent articles dealing with military history published by other journals, an annual list of doctoral dissertations in military history, and an annual index. Officers and NCOs who enter the US professional military education system are educated about the responsibilities they hold in a society where civilians control the military and make decisions about where and when to use military force. At the most senior level of PME, for instance, War College students become well-versed in the special responsibilities they hold on the military side of the civil-military equation. Today’s civilians, by contrast, are under- educated about their responsibilities.

All this gives the field relevance, and, indeed, urgency, inside the classroom. Scholars in our field are well-positioned to draw linkages and build bridges among subfields in history, and to engage in interdisciplinary work. Because warfare has dramatic consequences at every level of human existence, it must be a central element in the way that we understand our own narrative through the ages.

To avoid the study of war is to undermine our opportunity to fully comprehend ourselves—and our evolution over time—in social, political, psychological, scientific, and technological realms. 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 has included many of the world’s most prominent scholars, soldiers, and citizens interested in military history. Military history ought to be a vital component of a liberal education, one that prepares students to be informed and responsible citizens. Since civilian control of the military is a foundational element of American democracy, our civilians must have enough basic knowledge to carry out this function competently and responsibly.

The cross-fertilization in these realms has been extensive in recent years, and each one has influenced the others in salutary ways. Stimulate and advance the study of military history, especially that of the United States of America and to diffuse knowledge thereof by publications, displays and otherwise. A couple colleagues and I are trying to put together a panel proposal for the 2019 Society for Military History conference on either military deception or intelligence and information in World War I. At this point, we have a chair/discussant and two papers. My paper reassesses the deception and security efforts by the American Expeditionary Forces and the French in support of the St. Mihiel Offensive in the light of deception theory. The Society for Military History and the CSIS Project on History and Strategy are pleased to announce the annual Graduate Student Prize in Applied Military History for 2020.

Society with regard to Military Background�

Society For Military History 87th Annual Meeting

From the wreckage—the broken bodies, the redrawn boundaries, the imperfect treaties, the fresh resentments and the intensified old ones—altered political and social patterns and institutions emerge that may help to prevent future conflicts, or sow the seeds of new ones. All of this creates a difficult, complicated, and fraught historical landscape to traverse. The “moving wall” represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a “zero” moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication. Individual paper proposalsare also welcome and must include a 300-word abstract of the paper, and one-page vita with contact information and email address. If accepted, individual papers will be assigned by the program committee to an appropriate panel with a chair and commenter.

Students will not understand Vladimir Putin’s contemporary Russian nationalism if they do not understand Western intervention in the Russian civil war, the history of the Second World War, the Cold War that followed it, and the expansion of NATO following the Soviet collapse in 1989. The resort to war signals the failure of far more satisfactory means of settling human conflicts. It forces us to face and wrestle with the darkest corners of the human psyche. It signals the coming of trauma and suffering—often intense and prolonged—for individuals, families and societies. War-fighting concentrates power in nondemocratic ways, infringes upon civil liberties, and convulses political, economic, and social systems.

But the central reasons for an embrace of contemporary military history go far beyond the practical realities of departmental budgets. Shedding these burdens will require ongoing and mutual outreach from both military and non-military historians. Perhaps the best way for military historians to make their case to the broader profession is to highlight the range, diversity, and breadth of the recent scholarship in military history, as well as the dramatic evolution of the field in recent decades. Military historians believe that our work is a vital component of a liberal education that prepares students to be informed and responsible citizens. The society was established in 1933 as the American Military History Foundation, renamed in 1939 to the American Military Institute, and renamed again in 1990 to the Society for Military History. It has over 2,300 members, including many prominent scholars, soldiers, and citizens interested in military history.

Because warfare has dramatic consequences at every level of human existence, it must be a central element in the way that we understand our own narrative through the ages.

In the US today, the burden of military service is carried by only about 1% of the population. The remaining 99% have only limited contact with serving military personnel, and military institutions; our young people know little about warfare—and its profound costs and consequences—outside of what partial and often unhelpful information filters through via the popular culture. We do little to prepare our citizens to understand their role in owning and controlling a large military institution.

Other common relationships include a journal that is a supplement to another journal, a journal that is absorbed into another journal, a journal that splits into two or more new journals, or two or more journals that merge to form a new journal. For each of these related journals, the title history lists the dates published. Poster proposalsallow military historians to share their research through visual materials. Proposals should clearly explain the poster’s topics and arguments, as well as how the information will be presented visually. Build relationships with key people who manage and lead nonprofit organizations with GuideStar Pro.

These include the bi-annual rose sale, clothing, food drives, volunteering at community centers, and working with families. Student membership in the National Association of Social Workers provides similar opportunities at a much broader level. Students involved in NASW interact with experienced professional social workers and participate in city and regional projects. Another great way to get involved in the school of social work is to serve on a committee!

For aspiring social workers, participating in a professional organization like Alpha Delta Mu Honor Society can be a worthwhile endeavor that focuses specific directions of study and influences future career decisions.
