The anniversary of World War I has brought a focus on Central and Eastern Europe, in particular the former Habsburg lands. This conference organised by Jonathan Kwan (University of Nottingham) aims to bring together scholars working on the history of Central and Eastern Europe in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It will be structured around World War I in order to provide an opportunity to reflect on the pre-war conditions, the course of the war and its consequences.

World War 1 had a profound effect on the region. The war began in the region and, with its conclusion, new countries were formed, the map redrawn and the Habsburg Monarchy dissolved. This conference aims to re-examine the region's history in the long perspective.

*Please be advised that bookings for this event are for both Friday 12 & Saturday 13 September unless otherwise requested.
