‘The most furious and killing weapons’: a history of weapons and warfare New Voices in the History of War IV
The University of Sheffield – Manchester Metropolitan University
Society for the History of War
We are delighted to invite abstracts of 250 words for the History of Weapons and War symposium to be held online on 28 January 2022. The symposium welcomes contributions from across historical periods and geographies on the broad theme of weapons, warfare, and society. We will prioritise papers from PhD students, early career researchers and those working in non-tenured positions or outside universities. The symposium aims to shed light on areas of military histories and the history of weapons often underrepresented in established scholarship, especially those related to arms production, the arms trade, and social and cultural histories of weapons and war.
The deadline for abstracts is 1 November and we will inform applicants of an outcome early that month. Areas of interest may include, but are not limited to:
