Call for papers: Alliances conference
The National Army Museum is holding a conference on the subject of alliances in the history of armed conflict (1642 to the present day).
The conference will take place on 24-25 March 2023. We are currently inviting proposals for papers or lightning presentations. Proposals for panels of three papers with a chair will also be considered. The deadline for submissions is Sunday, 15 January 2023.
We welcome papers that explore the history of alliances, coalitions and partnerships in the broadest sense, from any disciplinary perspective, in connection or comparison to Britain’s armies, including the Indian Army and other land forces serving under the Crown.
We are particularly interested in papers that take a transnational or global perspective, focus on regiments raised abroad, or consider the interaction between civilian and military groups. Papers from graduate students and early career researchers are especially encouraged.
Possible themes for papers may include:
