THE INTERNATIONAL NAPOLEONIC SOCIETY
LA SOCIÉTÉ NAPOLÉONIENNE INTERNATIONALE
Dear Fellows of the International Napoleonic Society,
I am very pleased to send you the tenth issue of our international academic journal, Napoleonic Scholarship. We have a wide range of excellent articles. All articles were peer reviewed and meet the high standards set by the INS. To reflect that academic excellence, we have received an International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) for our journal. For the print version it is 2563-8793 and for the online version it is 2563-8807. This should make it easier for international academic scholars to receive credit for their published papers.
In this email you will find a link that will take you to the PDF version of the journal. From there, you can either read it online or download it as a PDF file. Each listing in the table of contents is a link that will take you directly to that article. (Please note that this is not the case for the table of contents in this email).
As always, I thank our Editor-in-Chief, Wayne Hanley, and our Production Editor, Edna Markham, for their outstanding work in producing this outstanding journal.
This has been a difficult year on several fronts. Of course, the worldwide COVID pandemic has made in-person conferences difficult, even impossible. As the problem is continuing, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel our planned 2021 Congress in Athens, Greece. Instead, we will have a virtual Congress sometime this summer that will concentrate on Napoleon’s time on St Helena, his death, and the legacy and legend that followed him. We hope that many of you will choose to participate. There will be no charge for the Congress, and we may even have a virtual happy hour! You will receive further details in the near future. I am also very pleased to say that our 2022 Congress in Cork, Ireland, is moving ahead and we have every expectation that it will be an outstanding Congress!
As you know, the Weider family withdrew its financial support for the INS, offering no reason or explanation despite my repeated efforts to contact them. This has put the INS in a significantly difficult financial condition. Indeed, the long-term future of the INS is in at least some doubt. While we will charge for future in-person Congresses and excursions, the fact is that we need some significant donations if we are to function properly. There are administrative expenses that must be paid over and above expenses of the Congresses. Therefore, I am asking any of our Fellows with significant financial ability to please consider making a significant donation so that we can move forward as we would all like.
With my very best Napoleonic regards,
J. David Markham, President
