IUS Canada 2024: Call for Papers 

The 2024 IUS Canada Conference will be held at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario from October 25-27. We welcome papers or organized panels that address the key themes of interest to the IUS Fellows in support of emerging scholarly research dealing with the military establishment and civil-military relations.

Papers in all areas touching on defence and security in national and international contexts are eagerly solicited. To advance Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in scholarly and military professional discourse, we particularly encourage submissions that bring new academic, cultural or regional perspectives to broaden analytic frameworks and professional perspectives on defence and security. We therefore, wish to encourage submissions representing the full range of academic disciplines as well as those providing organized presentations on lived experiences in the military and societies.

Panel submissions (3-4 papers) are very welcome, and every effort will be made to group individually submitted papers into relevant panels. Submissions from graduate students who wish to be considered for the Franklin Pinch Award for best Graduate Student Paper should be clearly identified as such.

Authors submitting presentations independently should indicate “individual presentation submission” in their proposal. For both individual papers and panel submissions, please provide a 250 word abstract for each paper and complete contact information for each presenting author. Panel proposals should also include a 250 word abstract for the overall panel focus. Panel proposals and individual presentation submissions must be received no later than June 30, 2024 by the programme chair (Dr. Vanessa Brown: vanessa.brown@cfc.dnd.ca). Selection decisions will be communicated to presenting authors on or before August 1, 2024.

Please note that we strongly encourage papers to be given in person however will allow for one paper per panel to be delivered virtually. We ask that those submitting a panel or individual paper with one to be given virtually to clearly annotate this when making your submission. We will plan a full day of presentations for both Fri 25th and Sun 27th, we request you clearly note if you prefer your panel or paper not be scheduled in the morning of the 25th or afternoon of the 27th.

We will follow the same administrative arrangements as with the 2022 conference: presentations and lunch will be at Carleton University; a block of rooms has been reserved at the Lord Elgin Hotel; an initial reception will be held at the Lord Elgin Thursday 24th; and the conference dinner will be held near the Lord Elgin at the National Arts Centre the evening of Fri 25th.
