    "CALL FOR PAPERS
    11th Annual Symposium of the Social History of Military Technology
    43rd Symposium of the International Committee for the History of Technology
    Porto, Portugal, 26–30 July 2016
    Proposals are sought for papers to be presented in the 11th Annual Symposium of the Social History of Military Technology (SSHMT), scheduled as part of the program for the 43rd Symposium of the International Committee for the History of Technology (ICOHTEC), Porto, Portugal, 26–30 July 2016. The general theme selected for the 2016 ICOHTEC symposium is: Technology, Innovation, and Sustainability: historical and contemporary narratives. In submitting a proposal for SSHMT, you are encouraged, but not required, to address the ICOHTEC themes. For the 2016 ICOHTEC conference as a whole, including information about accommodations, travel grants, and so forth, see: www.icohtec.org/annual-meeting-2016.html.
    [SIZE=12pt]SSHMT, a regular part of the ICOHTEC annual meeting since 2005, strives to move beyond the narrow material focus of fans, antiquarians, and even some historians. The history of military technology usually centers on weaponry, warships, fortifications, or other physical manifestations of warfare, emphasizing how they were made or how they worked. Historians have also tended to assume a strictly utilitarian and rational basis for military technological invention and innovation. However necessary they may be, such approaches largely ignore some very important questions. What are the contexts of social values, attitudes, and interests, non-military as well as military, that shape and support (or oppose) these technologies? How does the social order reciprocally interact with military technology? Or, more generally: How do social and cultural environments within the military itself or in the larger society affect military technological change? And the indispensable corollary: How does changing military technology affect other aspects of society and culture? In brief, [/SIZE]this symposium will address military technology as both agent and object of social change, taking a very broad view that encompasses not only the production, distribution, use, and replacement of weapons and weapon systems, but also communications, logistics, medicine, and other technologies of military relevance as well as sciences of military interest.
    We seek papers about: (1) representations of weapons as well as weapons themselves, about ideas as well as hardware, about organization as well as materiel; (2) ways in which social class, race, gender, culture, economics, politics, or other extra-military factors have influenced and been influenced by the invention, r&d, diffusion, or use of weapons or other military technologies; (3) the roles that military technologies play in shaping and reshaping the relationships of soldiers to other soldiers; soldiers to military, political, and social institutions; and military institutions to other social institutions, most notably political and economic; and/or (4) historiographical or museological topics that discuss how military technology has been analyzed, interpreted, and understood in other fields, other cultures, and other times. Pre-modern and non-Western topics are particularly welcome.
    Please keep in mind that conference presentations are not complete research papers. You will be allotted no more than 20 minutes to speak, and possibly as little as 16 minutes. Precise times available to speakers will be determined after the program is complete. All participants are encouraged to submit the full, annotated versions of their papers as articles to Vulcan: The International Journal of the Social History of Military Technology. Articles should be submitted to the editor, Bart Hacker, at: hacker@si.edu. For more about Vulcan, including sample issues and a stylesheet, see www.Brill.com/Vulcan.
    [SIZE=12pt]Do not submit your paper proposal to ICOHTEC[/SIZE][SIZE=12pt]. The symposium is being co-organized by Bart Hacker and Ciro Paoletti. Send your proposal to Bart Hacker at: [/SIZE]<hackerb@si.edu>, no later than 10 January 2016, but earlier is better. He will assemble and submit the complete symposium. Please feel free to distribute this CFP to anyone you believe may be interested and qualified."

    Not actually a conference, but probably still worth a visit-
    "SAND TO SNOW: GLOBAL WAR 1915
    May 1, 2015 - April 10, 2016, Exhibit Hall

    The year 1915 was pivotal in terms of the world-wide involvement in the war. World War I was the first truly global war starting in Europe, then spreading to Africa, Asia and the Near East. The European powers mobilized their colonies and commonwealths around the world. Soldiers and laborers from Southeast Asia, India, Africa and the Caribbean were sent to Europe and the Near East to fight. Particularly, the British Commonwealth nations of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa made a decisive impact.

    Sand to Snow: Global War 1915 illustrates the convergence of diverse military, political, economic and social forces of the combatant nations and neutral countries. The faces, actions, voices and objects of the people, often from an individual viewpoint, serve as our guides. Their contributions and sacrifices are the central themes.

    The exhibition showcases objects and documents from more than 20 countries across the world – the most encompassing special exhibition in the Museum’s history – including Bulgaria, The Netherlands, Russia, Switzerland, Australia, India, Germany, Montenegro, Poland and the United States. The vast majority of items are on exhibition for the first time at the Museum.

    The diversion of European factories to war production disrupted the entire world economy. To fight a global war the combatant nations incurred enormous debts to produce the weapons, ammunition and equipment necessary. Soldiers and sailors fighting across the globe required uniforms, supplies and food."

    The Battle for Lake Tanganyika 1915-1916 Mimi and Toutou Go To War
    Tim Stoneman

    A lecture and sandwich lunch 12.30-2.00pm Wednesday 17th February 2016
    Hosted by The Fusiliers Museum London in the Officer's Mess of The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers
    HM Tower of London.


    Fund raising talk for the Battlefields Trust and the Fusiliers Museum

    In what was truly a World War, a campaign was waged in the heart of Africa, thousands of miles from the North Sea and the Western Front. The Kaiser's ships dominated the waters of Lake Tanganyika, on the western flank of Oberstleutnant von Lettow-Worbeck's troops in German East Africa.

    A small force of Royal Naval vessels was sent to give battle; in the course of a deployment lasting fourteen months, the actions of this little flotilla resulted in the capture or sinking of all the German vessels without the loss of a single RN officer or rating, leaving Britain and her Belgian ally in control of the Lake. The actions even inspired a major film starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn!

    Tim Stoneman is a member of the International Guild of Battlefield Guides who left the RN in 2007 after 35 years as a warfare officer. He has a wide knowledge of naval conflict, and has been guiding tour groups on battlefields for many years, both whilst in uniform and since retiring.

    "Great War in the Middle East, 1911-1923 Conference - Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, 20-21 April 2016
    Type: Conference
    Date: April 20, 2016 to April 21, 2016
    Location: United Kingdom
    Subject Fields: Colonial and Post-Colonial History / Studies, Diplomacy and International Relations, Middle East History / Studies, Military History, World History / Studies
    This major international conference, organised jointly by the War Studies Department of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and the Changing Character of War Programme at the University of Oxford, will re-examine the origins, conduct and consequences of the First World War in the Middle East. The voluminous historiography of the conflict remains, however, focused on the European experience of 1914-18. This conference brings together historians of the Middle East and the First World War to discuss this formative event and to relate the Great War to the broader period of conflict that affected the Ottoman Empire from 1911 to 1923.

    The conference will provide a forum for scholars from around the world to examine the complexities of the Middle East’s Great War, and to discuss new avenues for research and debate. This was a region in which the great imperial powers of the early twentieth century struggled for control, and the resulting conflict unleashed powerful nationalist, imperial, religious, and ethnic dynamics that continue to both fascinate historians and to shape the region to this day. The conference will address these inter-related factors, and their role in the breaking and making of empires and nation-states in the Middle East. In doing so, the breadth of papers and discussions will integrate military, social, cultural, and political histories together to provide a broader history of the Middle East and the First World War.

    Conference Registration Fee: £100

    * Reduced fee for postgraduate students and early career researchers of £75 *

    (Book by 19 February to secure reduced fee)

    Accommodation and dinners can also be booked as optional extras. If you are interested in attending please email Dr James Kitchen for a copy of the conference information pack, booking form and the security form:

    "MANCHESTER MILITARY HISTORY SOCIETY
    The Battle of the Atlantic Operational Research"
    Tuesday 8th March 2016
    7.30pm

    While most people are aware of the contributions of allied scientists and engineers to the war effort through, for example, the development of Radar, the Engima programme, jet engines etc. Far fewer are aware of the work of a small group who applied scientific methods to operational and tactical problems.

    Their work significantly improved allied fighting effectiveness in a number of areas and founded the modern discipline of Operational Research in the process.

    The first operational researchers worked with RAF Coastal Command and later the Admiralty during the Battle of the Atlantic. This talk gives an introduction to their work and the impact they had illustrated by examining a few key projects and setting them in the context of the battle as a whole.

    All are welcome and a lively discussion is guaranteed!"
