Call for Papers: In the Heart of the Great War-The Individual at the Crossroads between the Civilian and Military Worlds

CfP: In the Heart of the Great War-The Individual at the Crossroads between the Civilian and Military Worlds

News from Jan 18, 2017

The symposium will be held on 26-28 October 2017 at the Mons Memorial Museum in Mons, Belgium.

The symposium will question the ways through which individuals – soldiers, civilians at the home front or in occupied territories – integrate and conciliate the military dimension on one side (whether it’s their experience at the front or German presence on the streets of their village) and the civil dimension on the other. In addition to the encounter between the civilian and military « worlds », constituting two separate spheres, we must reflect upon the individual as being at the crossroads between two dimensions, which jointly construct him or her.

Proposals should be approximately one page in length. Applications should also be accompanied by a short CV. Please submit proposals to intheheartofthegreatwar@gmail.com by 3th March 2017. The working language of the conference is French and English.
