CFP – CJH/ACH Special Issue: The Early Modern Military-Medical Complex

Call for Submissions for a thematic issue of the Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d’histoire, slated for publication in December 2016.

In 1961, U.S. President Eisenhower famously warned about the dangers of the “military-industrial complex.” This thematic issue of the Canadian Journal of History takes Eisenhower’s rhetoric as a springboard for thinking about the complex relationships between the military, the state, and healthcare.

During the early modern period military medicine became an integral part of military planning as well as an attractive area of practice for early modern surgeons and physicians. Since the 1990s, historians of medicine have shown an increased interest in military medicine from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century. They have also pointed to the dynamic effects of a growing early modern military bureaucracy. From the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, European armies saw the development of increasingly elaborate and centralized health care systems, which became integral parts of military administration.

For this thematic issue of the Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d’histoire we invite proposals for articles that will explore the changing relationships between early modern armed forces, medicine, society, and the state. Potential authors might want to consider topics such as the administration and treatment of patients in field hospitals and the operational relevance of field medicine, the institutionalization of military medicine and education as well as training and career paths in military medicine, and the relationship between military and civilian medicine and the role of military medicine in the formation of medical knowledge. This thematic issue will develop an international comparative perspective on early modern military medicine and the state.

Deadline for abstracts (maximum length 350 words): 15 October 2015

Selected authors will be notified in November 2015.

Deadline for full papers: 15 February 2016.

Articles may be written in English or French, with a length of 25-35 double-spaced pages (including notes) and will undergo double-blind peer review.

Please submit your abstract by email to:
Attn: Dr Sebastian Pranghofer, Guest Editor
Helmut Schmidt University
University of the Federal Armed Forces

The Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d'histoire annually awards the CJH Graduate Essay Prize of $500 for the best article submitted by a graduate student registered at a Canadian university, or by a Canadian graduate student registered at any university in the world. The essay must be based on original research and meet scholarly standards. Suggested length not over 35 pages double-spaced, notes included. Please send your submission via the University of Toronto Press PRESTO system, indicating clearly on the first page of the essay that it is intended for the Graduate Essay Competition. The winning entry will be published in the Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d'histoire. Entries will be judged by the editor, by at least one other member of our editorial or advisory boards, and by outside specialists.

Submissions deadline: 15 August of each year.

Graduate Fellowship in History and Scholarly Publishing
University of Saskatchewan, Department of History
The Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d’histoire

The Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d’histoire (CJH/ACH) announces a new graduate fellowship for a student in history who has an interest in scholarly publishing. A leading peer-reviewed journal of general history with an international audience, the CJH/ACH has been published by the History Department at the University of Saskatchewan since 1966. It publishes articles, reviews, commentary, and research notes in both English and French, and appears three times a year.

Candidates for the fellowship must apply successfully for fall term admittance into either the MA or PhD program in History at the University of Saskatchewan. Prospective students should identify a potential faculty supervisor for their research as part of their application. During the academic year, the successful candidate will work twelve (12) hours per week for the journal, during which time they would not be expected to work as a Teaching Assistant. The fellow will assist with the following functions: identifying appropriate reviewers for books received; corresponding with reviewers; ordering and processing books for review; copyediting, formatting, and proofreading; record-keeping and data entry; website maintenance; advertising sales; marketing; and translation (as skills permit). The fellowship pays a stipend of approximately $17,000and is renewable (subject to budgetary approval).

APPLICATIONS: No special form is required. However, candidates for the fellowship must include with their regular application for admission a one-page letter addressed to the journal’s Editor, Dr. Mark Meyers, in which they
(1) explain why they are interested in the CJH/ACH Graduate Fellowship; (2) identify a potential faculty supervisor for their research; (3) summarize, if applicable, their experience in scholarly and/or other forms of publishing; and (4) indicate their language skills in both English and French (especially reading comprehension and writing), noting any language courses or training they have had. Candidates may be interviewed in person or by telephone or Skype.

Although all candidates with an interest in history and scholarly publishing are encouraged to apply, preference will be given to applicants with prior experience in scholarly publishing, as well as to those with language skills in both English and French.
