SMH 2017 Conference

For those attending the Society for Military History conference this year (not me) in Jacksonville, FL on March 30-April 2, you have the following panels to attend:

PANEL 2 B – BOARDROOM 2, 3RD FLOOR

RELIGION, REVOLT AND INDEPENDENCE: UNDERSTANDING WAR IN EARLY MODERN EUROPE

The Enigma of Hugh O’Neill: Irish Military Strategy and Foreign Intervention in the Nine Years War
Edward Tenace, Lyon College

Intervening from a Position of Weakness: English Intervention Attempts on the Continent During the Personal Rule of Charles I
James A. Tucker, The Ohio State University

At the same time there are two panels on digital military history, if you like that kind of thing.

There’s also a poster in Session 3:

Soldiers and Society after the Seven Years’ War: The Impact of Eighteenth Century Demobilization
Jessica Dirkson, Georgia Southern University.

PANEL 4 A BOARDROOM 1, 3RD FLOOR

18TH AND 19TH CENTURY EUROPEAN WARS ON GLOBAL CONTEXT

Old-Regime Armies? Modern Armies? The Case of Habsburg Austria, 1740-1792

    Thanks Jamel,
    I cannot attend the conference, but I know Greg Bereiter quite well and so would recommend Panel 4A to all who do attend.

  2. Mark Danley says :

    Thank you for the plug, Jamel…it ended up being a pretty good conference. We missed you of course! Of course I pushed the whole “book history + military history” agenda, as I am ever inclined to do.
