The theme of the conference is "Remembrances: Constructing Narratives of
Wars of the 19th and 20th Centuries." The Program Committee invites
proposals for presentations and papers that explore the construction of the
memories of wars as well as the social and cultural aspects of the war. Interdisciplinary papers in the social sciences or humanities, including literary studies, art history, and philosophy from young and senior scholars as well as graduate students are welcome. There will be a reception at the Crane Creek Vineyards and other exciting activities for conference participants.
The Program Committee will consider proposals for individual papers and for

abstract and brief curriculum vitae. Each full-panel proposal should
