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.

The deadline for submissions is Sunday, 15 January 2023. Decisions will be sent out in late January.
The conference will take place on a hybrid basis, so it will be possible to present and attend either in person or remotely if you prefer. For those attending in person, small travel bursaries are available for speakers who are not supported by their institution.
We are also offering travel bursaries to graduate students who are not presenting papers but would still like to attend.
Please include a note with your proposal if you would like to apply for one of these.
If you have any questions about the conference, or would like to discuss an idea for a paper, please contact one of the National Army Museum’s Historians, who would be happy to help.
