The Chinese Military History Society will hold its 2021 conference online on Friday, May 14. The theme of this year's conference is “Turning Points in Chinese Military History.” This includes decisive events that changed the course of battles, campaigns, and wars, as well as new departures in military thought and key changes in weaponry, tactics, and institutions. Papers may address any historical period from antiquity to the present. As usual, papers are not required to address the conference theme; proposals on other subjects related to the military history of China and other East Asian countries will be considered as well.

The CMHS 2021 conference will follow the same format as the 2020 conference: presentations will be pre-recorded and then streamed through Facebook on the day of the conference, with Q&A, comment, and discussion done in writing using the chat function.

If you are interested in presenting at the CMHS conference, please send your name and contact information, a paper abstract of no more than 250 words, and a brief C.V. to David Graff by January 15, 2021.
