UNSW Canberra and the Society of Military History are offering a bursary for PhD students and ECRs to attend the conference ‘Towards a New History of the Interwar Period’, on 3 – 4 September 2019. Among those speaking will be Dr Carolyn Holbrook, Professor James Cotton, Professor Joan Beaumont and Professor Frank Bongiorno. The conference website can be found here: https://www.unsw.adfa.edu.au/1919-1939-toward-new-history-interwar-period-%E2%80%93-conference-memory-jeff-grey
The bursary of $1000 will cover travel and accommodation, and attendance at the conference will be free. The bursary reflects the commitment of the conference, UNSW Canberra and the Society of Military History to encouraging the discussion of military history by historians with a wide range of approaches, topics and backgrounds. Scholars who take different approaches to military history, or who do not necessarily consider themselves to be ‘military historians’, are particularly encouraged to apply.
Applicants should be currently undertaking a PhD or within three years of the conferral of their PhD (or equivalent if they have experienced academic interruptions), and should be studying a military history topic, broadly defined.

• A CV of no more than three pages;
