BCMH New Research in Military History Conference
Friday 17th - Saturday 18th November 2017
SAHR was delighted to sponsor the New Research in Military History Conference, organised by the British Commission for Military History and SAHR Council member Adam Storring at St. John's College, Cambridge on 17 and 18 November 2017.
The event saw 85 young researchers present their work, on topics including the British Army’s first staff college, the Peninsula War, British officers in the Boer War, the effects of limb loss on servicemen, British counter-insurgency in Mandate Palestine, the Falklands War, and the 2010 UK Strategic Defence Review. Among the speakers was SAHR University Research Grant recipient Ryan Crimmins (New College, Oxford). Professor Brendan Simms (University of Cambridge) gave the keynote address on the battle of La Haie Sainte.
Over 140 attendees came to enjoy the event, and many stayed for the formal dinner in Clare College. SAHR is proud to sponsor new research on the history of the British Army, and hopes to hold more joint events with BCMH in the future.
