Call for Proposals
WWII Emerging Scholars Symposium
Here is Your War: Military, Press, and Homefront Visions of War

Emerging scholars are invited to submit a presentation abstract as a featured speaker during the annual D-Day Commemorative Symposium. The Roosevelt, Truman, and Eisenhower Presidential Libraries seek submissions from emerging scholars to be a featured speaker during the virtual symposium held the first week of June. The symposium focuses on specialized topics related to the Allied effort in World War II.

The 2022 theme emerges from famed World War II reporter Ernie Pyle’s work “Here Is Your War.” This symposium seeks to examine the reporting of the war from the front, news of home to those fighting, and war propaganda that helped unite the two. Our goal is to enhance the future of WWII scholarship by examining lesser-known topics and showcasing new and emerging scholars.

Each program is scheduled for one hour. The guest speaker will present their topic for approximately 40 minutes allowing time for audience participation and questions at the end. Each program wraps up with a Scholar Spotlight where we get to know a little bit more about each of these up-and-coming scholars.

Submission packets should include the presentation abstract, applicant contact information, education status and academic goals summary. Email submission packets to Andrea Murphy with the subject line D-Day Symposium no later than April 23, 2022. Selected participants will be notified May 12 and will receive a modest honorarium.
