Konf:  Experiences of World War One: strangers, differences and locality

"The British Association for Local History and the Institute of Commonwealth Studies are organising a workshop about the First World War. The workshop will serve as "an introduction to researching war experience and its legacy: individual, family and community perspectives through the prism of the local, national and international". The workshop will consider the opportunities - in terms of interacting with new people, places and societies - provided by the conflict, and poses several questions which will be explored: How did local communities interact with colonial and Dominion troops? In what ways did racial issues impact on local community relations during the war, and in its aftermath? What relationships evolved between communities, hospitals where colonial/Dominion troops were treated ad individual soldiers? How might the war's legacy be informed by ethnic minorities? During the war years, and after, how was the idea of Empire experienced, understood and imagined by people in British localities? To what extent did war change European colonial victors' views of their extended Empires?"

Die Tagung findet am 28. Februar in London statt.
