Critical Military Studies section (section 07)
Building on previous successes of Critical Military Studies (CMS) sections at EISA 2013 and 2015, this section will bring together a cross-disciplinary group of scholars, at different stages of their career, to contribute to a ten-panel section at EISA 2017, showcasing on-going and emergent research in the field. In times of crises, militaries, and the material and symbolic power they wield, are frequently called upon as both solution and cause. As key actors in international relations, militaries are embedded in social relations that legitimise, condone and make possible the use and nature of military force, while a globalised world means we are all touched by their influence. Thus, in line with this year’s conference theme, this section invites papers that interrogate the gendered, racialised and socio-economical ways that militaries are constituted and understood that work to position them and their actions as ‘commonsensical’ in an age of crises. The section also invites papers that explore the ways in which militaries, militarism and militarisation are challenged, resisted and subverted.
Each panel/roundtable should comprise 5 papers/presenters plus a discussant who may also act as panel/roundtable chair.
Abstracts should be no longer than 200 words and all must be submitted via EISA’s online submission system: https://www.conftool.pro/paneuropean2017/
The deadline for submissions is 10 February 2017.
