Call for Papers – The Seventh Triennial Vietnam Symposium

The Seventh Triennial Vietnam Symposium will take place on March 10-12, 2011, and will be held at the brand new Overton Hotel and Convention Center in Lubbock, Texas.

Vietnam Center symposia are open to presentations that examine any and all aspects of the United States involvement in Southeast Asia. This includes activities before, during, and after the war in Vietnam. Papers can examine any aspect of the experience to include early interaction and diplomacy, events and activities during the war to include military operations, humanitarian relief efforts, civic action and pacification, thematic issues to include social, political, cultural, and economic, the international dimensions of the war for all sides involved, activities in the US and elsewhere in support of or in opposition to the war, postwar issues, etc.

We encourage anyone interested in presenting a research paper to submit a one page proposal and a short CV for consideration. We also welcome panel proposals that include all speakers and a moderator. As always, graduate students are highly encouraged to submit proposals. Please format proposals to resemble an abstract to include the author’s name, title/affiliation, and contact information, along with proposed title, thesis/purpose, and main points. Please limit paper proposal length to a single page. For panel proposals, please limit each paper proposal within the panel to a single page. Submit all proposals electronically to VietnamCenterConference@ttu.edu. If you make an email submission but do not receive notification of receipt within seven days, please call 806-742-3742 and ask for Steve Maxner, Ph.D., Director, Vietnam Center and Archive.

The deadline for submitting proposals is October 15, 2010.
