This month, Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to be partnering with the British Commission for Military History to support their annual New Research in Military History Conference, held this year at the University of Southampton on the 16th and 17th of November.
The British Commission for Military History was founded in 1965, and it serves as a forum for the discussion and promotion of military history. They do so through a newly launched and pioneering open access journal entitled the British Journal for Military History, and through the organisation of conferences and wider events showcasing research in military history from the UK and beyond.
This year, we are delighted to be sponsoring the BCMH’s annual New Research in Military Conference as part of our observation of the Centenary of Armistice and the end of World War One. Recognising that attempting to accurately represent the past is a difficult if not impossible endeavour, the conference is themed around the twin notions of ‘Myth and Reality’. As always, the conference is also dedicated to highlighting the research of postgraduate and early career scholars, allowing them to present their research in a friendly, welcoming, and supportive atmosphere.
Delegates of the conference are entitled to exclusive discounts on Cambridge Scholars’ latest titles on the military history of World War One, as well as on several other of our titles covering military history from ancient to modern times. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @Mars_Clio, and to register click here. Registration closes at 23:00 on the 4th of November so please act fast if you would like to attend.
Since its foundation the BCMH has developed a diverse and knowledgeable membership of military historians, spanning the different realms of universities, museums, archives, and local history societies. Membership is open to all, and further information about how to apply is available here.
