Veterans Studies - Perceptions on the World Stage

Veterans Studies is a growing field of research that addresses the significant impact of military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life. All the world is a ‘stage’ for military personnel and their families. Their stories and experiences as they ‘act’ in foreign locations is a rich part of human culture that veterans bring with them when they return to civilian life. This special session invites papers that explore the many facets of the military experience including literature, theatre, film, and poetry written about or by military veterans.

Applicants must submit proposals via the online system. Information about the PAMLA conference is available at The extended deadline to submit paper proposals is June 28, 2018.

In addition to presenting at this session, you are invited to submit completed papers to the Journal of Veterans Studies, “an open-access, peer-reviewed journal…whose goals are to sustain research in veterans studies, facilitate interdisciplinary research collaborations, and narrow gaps between cultures, institutions, experiences, knowledge, and understanding.”
