Call for Papers and Registration Now Available for 2018 IUS Canada Conference

Beyond tokenism: How diversity can strengthen the armed forces

The 2018 IUS Canada Conference will be held at the Lord Elgin Hotel in Ottawa, Ontario from the October 19-21. The conference theme is on understanding how the Armed Forces can harness the potential of the diversity that exists across society. What are benefits of having a more diverse military – and what are the challenges of including those with different backgrounds, experiences, worldviews and values? Moving beyond how the military can attract more individuals from under-represented groups, how much difference is too much and, conversely, how much can or should the dominant military culture and prototype ideal service member evolve? IUS Canada 2018 will provide an opportunity to consider diversity from different perspectives and seeks to attract a range of scholarly work on the subject.

General information

Founded in 1960 by Morris Janowitz, Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the University of Chicago, the IUS provided a much-needed focal point for communication and criticism among those independently engaged in research on the armed forces at widely scattered universities and research centers. In this, our 50th anniversary year (2010), the Inter-University Seminar on Armed Forces and Society today constitutes an "invisible college" for nearly 600 Fellows in over 35 countries. Fellows who make up the IUS include academics, military officers, students, and researchers in a variety of institutional settings, both private and public. Our Fellows represent various disciplines, including political science, sociology, history, psychology, economics, international relations, social work, anthropology, law, criminology, psychiatry, and human relations, to name just a few. Strong, visionary, and internationally-oriented leadership has also defined the IUS. Sam C. Sarkesian, Loyola University Chicago, followed Morris Janowitz as IUS President and Chairman, serving from 1982 to 1989. The late Charles C. Moskos, Northwestern University, served as Chairman from 1989 to 1997 and as IUS President from 1989 to 1995. David R. Segal, University of Maryland College Park, assumed the Presidency in 1995. In 1997 Segal also became IUS Chairman, laying the groundwork for the first democratically elected IUS Council. John Allen (Jay) Williams, Loyola University Chicago, became the current IUS President and Chair at the Biennial International Conference of the IUS in Chicago in October of 2003. The core premise of the IUS is that analysis of military institutions requires intellectual collaboration across university, organizational, disciplinary, theoretical, and national lines. IUS Fellows provide new perspectives on the study of military professionalism, civil-military relations, social composition of the armed forces, changes in force structure, public policy on defense-related issues, peacekeeping, arms control, conflict resolution, and more. The Fellows of the IUS differ widely in their strategic and political outlooks, but they all hold the common view that objective research on military organizations is a most worthy goal for which we should continually strive. They believe that such research, conducted along scholarly lines, makes an invaluable contribution to citizen understanding of armed forces. That was the founding mission of the IUS in 1960, and it is our reality today.

Over the past month I've received two invitations to review a purportedly scholarly article, stating that I must respond within ten days and that the article would be sent to me by E-mail. Both locations were foreign (Africa, Pakistan). I didn't respond, considering it a hacking attempt via an infected pdf (besides not being interested).. Has anyone else received this?
