Appel à communications – Women serving in the Armed Forces: Shaping Modern Values and Beyond
Traditionally, women have been excluded from many roles in the military, most especially combat roles. In recent years, however, that has all changed, first unofficially, and finally officially: women have been de facto serving in combat roles for the last decade or so, and the first female candidates have been or in all probability soon will be admitted to Marine Corps Infantry training and the US Army Ranger School. ISME is pleased to accept papers on all aspects of this historical development.
Questions to consider might include:
- The right of women to serve in such roles
- Gender related moral dilemmas: case studies
- Embracing diversity: balancing practical considerations and modern values
- Equality and equity in promotion
- Moral injuries during and after war: impact of gender on healing
Submissions should be sent to email@example.com no later than
1st September, 2015.
Abstracts are acceptable, although full papers are preferred (but please also include an abstract); please limit submissions to no more than 7,000 words. As always, we accept high quality submissions in any area of military ethics.
- Dr. Stephanie Belanger (firstname.lastname@example.org),
- Dr. George Lucas (email@example.com), and
- Dr. Richard Schoonhoven (Richard.Schoonhoven@usma.edu).
The conference will take place Friday and Saturday, January 29-30 at the Loew’s Hotel in Annapolis, Maryland, adjacent to the U.S. Naval Academy. We are working to have this classified as an “official DoD Conference,” in order to ease travel restrictions and arrangements for military and civilian DoD personnel wishing to attend. Vice Admiral Ted Carter (Superintendent, USNA) has agreed to address our participants. The Theme and Call for Papers are listed on the following page. Please note the revised (and final) dates for the meeting: 29-30 January 2016. Further information will be posted shortly the website of our institutional sponsor, the Reilly Center for Science, Technology & Values at Notre Dame University.
