11-13 September 2019, University of Leeds
The International Society for First World War Studies is delighted to announce its 11th conference, to be held at the University of Leeds in September 2019. As the centenary commemorations draw to a close, 2019 offers the opportunity to re-examine the myriad legacies of the First World War. From grand diplomacies to the minutiae of everyday life, the global effects of the war can be seen in the colonised and the coloniser, in the belligerent nations and their non-belligerent counterparts, among those who remained at home and in those who ventured further afield. Convenors invite scholars at all career stages to submit proposals for 20-minute conference papers, 10-minute ‘lightning presentations’ or posters. As part of the conference there will be opportunities for broader professional development with museum curation and public engagement workshops. In order to showcase and share the innovative practice of First World War scholars, there will also be a roundtable discussion on teaching the war.
Abstracts due 28 February 2019.
