CfP: Kriegsversehrungen im 20. Jahrhundert in europäischer Perspektive
Universität Siegen, 28.06.2019 - 29.06.2019
Deadline:31.01.2019
Veranstalter: Prof. Dr. Noyan Dinçkal, Europäische Wissens- und Kommunikationsgeschichte der Moderne, Universität Siegen; Prof. Dr. Sabine Schleiermacher, Forschungsschwerpunkt Zeitgeschichte, Institut für Geschichte der Medizin und Ethik der Medizin, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin
  Das Thema Kriegsversehrung rückt zunehmend in den Fokus der historischen Forschung. Angesichts der Jugoslawien-Kriege in den 1990er Jahren, der Debatten um die (neuen) Aufgaben der Bundeswehr, der Golfkriege oder des aktuellen „Krieges gegen den Terror“ – um einige Bespiele zu nennen – scheint das Bedürfnis nach einer historischen Deutung der Effekte und Rückwirkungen kriegerischer Konflikte auf die kriegsführenden Länder zuzunehmen. Nachdem auch deutsche Bundeswehrsoldaten aus ihren Auslandseinsätzen mit physischen und psychischen Verletzungen zurückkehren, ist die Frage nach den Strategien im Umgang mit und der Kompensation von Kriegsversehrungen verstärkt von öffentlichem Interesse, worauf auch die aktuellen Diskussionen über posttraumatische Belastungsstörungen verweisen.
Es ist schon häufig darauf hingewiesen worden, dass die Kriege des 20. Jahrhunderts und speziell die beiden Weltkriege durch die Senkung der Gewaltschwellen und durch einen bislang unbekannten Grad der Mobilisierung und Vernichtung von Material und Menschen gekennzeichnet waren. Allein während des Zweiten Weltkriegs wurden über 50 Millionen Menschen getötet oder schwer verletzt. Im Zusammenspiel von maschineller Zerstörungsgewalt und dem Einsatz wissenschaftlich-medizinischer Mittel zum Erhalt von Leben überlebten immer mehr Soldaten schwerstverletzt. Die Nachkriegsgesellschaften waren aber nicht nur von verletzten Militärangehörigen, sondern gleichermaßen von den zivilen Opfern und ihren Anerkennungskämpfen geprägt. Kriegsversehrung waren kein gesellschaftliches Randphänomen, sondern vielmehr ein zentrales Merkmal europäischer Nachkriegsgesellschaften im 20. Jahrhundert.
Vor diesem Hintergrund ist es Ziel des Workshops, die Bedeutung von Kriegsgeschädigten mit psychischen und/oder physischen Verletzungen für die europäischen Gesellschaften zu diskutieren und dabei verschiedene Forschungsperspektiven miteinander ins Gespräch zu bringen. Es können gleichermaßen Debatten über Kriegsversehrungen als auch einzelne bzw. kollektive Leidenserfahrungen sowie sozial- und gesellschaftspolitische Entschädigungsstrategien thematisiert werden. Beiträge, die das Thema methodisch/konzeptionell diskutieren, sind ebenso willkommen wie vergleichende und transnationale Perspektiven sowie Erörterungen konkreter Fallbeispiele.
Folgende inhaltliche Schwerpunkte bieten sich an:
  1. Sozialpolitische Dimensionen:
In diesem Zusammenhang stellt sich die Frage, welche Auswirkungen der Umgang mit Kriegsversehrten für die Entwicklung des modernen Sozialstaates hatte. Welche sozialpolitischen Probleme und Herausforderungen waren in den europäischen Nachkriegsgesellschaften mit den Kriegsversehrten verbunden und inwieweit wurde mit einer sozialpolitischen Gesetzgebung darauf reagiert? Welche Rückwirkungen hat die Bewertung kriegerischer Auseinandersetzungen auf die Entwicklung von Versorgungsstrukturen gehabt? Sind hier nationale Unterschiede zu beobachten und hatten die entwickelten Unterstützungs- bzw. Fördermaßnahmen Effekte auf eine staatliche sozialpolitische Programmatik?
  2. Symbolpolitische Dimensionen:
Die Anwesenheit der Kriegsversehrten in den europäischen Nachkriegsgesellschaften hatte auch eine symbolpolitische Komponente. Wie wurde Kriegsversehrung in der Öffentlichkeit wahrgenommen und welche gesellschaftliche Bedeutungen wurde ihr zugemessen? Welchen Stellenwert hatten Kriegsversehrte beispielsweise in öffentlichen Ritualen des Kriegsgedenkens? Inwiefern gab es Unterschiede im Umgang mit Kriegsversehrung bei Siegern und Besiegten? Wie avancierte die Figur des versehrten Soldaten zur Verkörperung der zerstörerischen Folgen von Krieg oder, im Falle des Sieges bzw. der Niederlage, zur symbolischen Ent- bzw. Aufwertung der Nation?
  3. Geschlechter- und körperhistorische Perspektiven:
In diesem Zusammenhang stellt sich die Frage, wie die Präsenz von Kriegsversehrten in der Öffentlichkeit und im Alltag auf gesellschaftliche Körperbilder einwirkte. Insgesamt prägten Männern, die im Krieg verletzt wurden, sowohl das Bild von „Behinderung“ als auch die nationalstaatliche Behindertenpolitik. Letztlich überformte diese Prägung sogar die Perspektive auf kriegsversehrte Frauen. Welchen Stellenwert hatte die Rehabilitation des versehrten männlichen Körpers in den Debatten zur „Wiedervervollständigung“ der Familie und den damit verbundenen Bemühungen zur sog. moralischen Stabilisierung der Nachkriegsgesellschaften? Welche Rolle spielten hierbei gewisse Ideale hegemonialer Männlichkeit wie etwa die des Beschützers und Versorgers? Wurden mittels sozialpolitischer Intervention tradierte Geschlechterverhältnisse restauriert bzw. eröffnete die Einschränkung von Fähigkeiten die Möglichkeit, geschlechtsspezifische Strukturen einer Revision zu unterziehen? Insbesondere in vergleichend europäischer Perspektive sind in diesem Kontext Beiträge, die den Blick auch auf kriegsgeschädigte Frauen und Kinder lenken, willkommen.
  4. Rehabilitation, Medizin, Prothetik:
Der Körper der Kriegsversehrten wurde zum Objekt wissenschaftlich-technischer Interventionen. Hierbei stellt sich die Frage, in welchem Ausmaß Kriegsversehrte eine Rolle in der Akzeptanz von medizintechnischen Lösungsansätzen zur Überwindung von „Behinderung“ gespielt haben. Die medizinischen „Wiederherstellungsversuche“ konzentrierten sich vor allem auf die Normalisierung körperlicher Schädigungen z.B. mit Prothesen und erst allmählich auch auf psychische Versehrungen. Welche wissenschaftlichen und technischen Körperbilder waren dabei leitend, wie veränderten sie sich im Verlaufe des 20. Jahrhunderts und wie unterschieden sie sich in den jeweiligen Nachkriegsgesellschaften, so etwa in Bezug auf die mit ihnen verbundenen Rehabilitationsmaßnahmen? Welchen gesellschaftlichen Normvorstellungen folgten sie und wie prägten sie das Normalbild der Kriegsversehrung? Und umgekehrt, welche Reaktionen lösten Rehabilitationsmuster und die damit einhergehenden gesellschaftlichen Erwartungen bei den Betroffenen selbst aus?
  5. Mediale Repräsentation:
Ein weiterer möglicher Schwerpunkt ist der Bereich „Medialität“, beispielsweise die Darstellung der Figur des Kriegsversehrten in der Literatur, der Musik, in den bildenden Künsten, in Denkmälern oder auch in populärkulturellen Medien wie etwa Film und Comic. Der Kriegsversehrte avancierte im 20. Jahrhundert zu einer zentralen Figur sowohl der Unterstützung als auch der Ablehnung von Krieg. Die Thematisierung von Verletzung und Verstümmelung infolge militärischer Auseinandersetzungen in Berichterstattungen implizierte auch immer Fragen der politischen und moralischen Legitimationen von Kriegen. Beiträge zur medialen Repräsentation von Kriegsversehrung erscheinen in diesem Zusammenhang vielversprechend.
  Die hier genannten Themenbereiche und Fragestellungen sind lediglich Anregung und sollen einer ersten Orientierung dienen.
Vortragsvorschläge im Umfang von ca. 2.500 Zeichen sowie ein kurzer akademischer Werdegang werden bis zum 31. Januar 2019 erbeten per E-Mail an: martina.huttner@uni-siegen.de

CfP: Humanitarianism and the ‘Greater War’, 1912-1923
06.09.2019 - 07.09.2019, University College Dublin, Centre for War Studies
Deadline: 15.02.2019
This 2-day conference provides an opportunity to debate the ideas, developments and legacy of humanitarianism in the era of the Great War, 1912-1923. The conference sits at the intersection of two burgeoning fields of historical inquiry, the history of humanitarianism and the history of the Great War. Recent years have seen an outpouring of innovative research on humanitarian individuals and organizations, fields of action, and the construction and use of ‘humanitarian narratives.’ A rapidly growing number of scholars, too, have highlighted the unique role the First World War played in fostering a ‘humanitarian awakening’ (Irwin), shaping humanitarian norms, discourses and practices. At the same time, recent scholarship on the First World War has led us to understand that conflict as a geographically and temporally much ‘Greater War’, whose critical events extended far beyond the fighting on the Western front, and 1914-18.
The conference aims to bring together scholars working on a wide variety of topics and employing different methodological approaches to showcase and debate current research trends. It will discuss absences and contradictions in existing scholarship, and identify areas of particular interest for future research. Last not least, the conference seeks to encourage a dialogue between the all too often isolated historiographies on humanitarianism and the ‘Greater War’: for example, how does the study of that period’s unprecedented suffering complicate the war’s accepted chronologies and geographies? And how might new notions of the global nature of the First World War inform our approach to the history of humanitarianism? In all, the conference hopes to interrogate the significance of the era of the Great War for the emergence of modern humanitarianism, while also underlining the importance of humanitarian engagement to understanding the war and its aftermath. It is envisaged that a selection of conference papers will be published in an edited volume.
Topics for presentations might include but are not limited to:
- the role of individuals and organizations in humanitarian work in the era of the Great War
- the global dimension of suffering and efforts to ameliorate it
- the emergence of humanitarian norms, organizational forms, and practices at the time, and (where applicable) their long-term impact
- the place of humanitarian concerns in (home front) mobilizations and demobilizations
- the actions and agency of relief beneficiaries
- ruptures and continuities between the war and the post-war period
- the relationship between humanitarianism and international politics
Scholars interested in presenting a paper at the conference are invited to send a brief abstract of 300 words and a one-page CV by 15 February 2019 to humanitarianwarconference@gmail.com
The conference will be able to offer hotel accommodation to presenters.

CFP: "Faire Front": The many non-Western theatres of the Great War
19.09.2019-20.09.2019, Brest, Faculté Victor Segalen
Deadline: 20.02.2019
Veranstalter: Fabrice Bouthillon / Sébastien Carney / Gwendal Piégais, Université de Bretagne Occidentale; Mathieu Panoryia, Université de Lorraine
   The network “A Greater War” (+GG) is dedicated to a generation of early career scholars that has emerged during the Centenary of the First World War. The network is based upon the idea of going beyond the borders that have thus far organised the study of the Great War in France, whether chronological, geographical, or disciplinary. The goal is to ensure that the vitality of the research continues after the commemorations, maintaining the quality and intensity of the debate. The network’s second workshop will interrogate the lesser-known theatres of the First World War, particularly the non-Western ones. The event will take place at the Université de Bretagne Occidentale (Brest) on 19-20 September 2019.
While the Great War broke out in Sarajevo, in the heart of the Balkans, the attention quickly turned from the Serbian mountains towards the battlefields of France and Belgium. A similar paradoxical shift happened on the Eastern Front, where France hoped to see her great efforts rewarded with a defeat of the Central Powers. The commemorations of the Great War have reinforced, in a certain way, this phenomenon and placed the emphasis on the great battles fought on the Western Front: Verdun, the Somme, the Chemin des Dames or the battles of Arras and Saint-Quentin. They provided the occasion for many scientific meetings and exchanges between academics and researchers. There has also been a widespread diffusion and mediatisation of the stakes and tensions of these key moments of the First World War. The Centenary was also able - on a much smaller scale - to highlight theatres of operation and neglected actors in historiography and collective memory. It has been possible to reassess the importance of fronts and operations in Africa, naval clashes in the Atlantic Ocean, battles in the Caucasus, and even to draw attention to the fate of the soldiers of the Eastern Front.
Despite these opportunities provided by the effervescence of scholarship around the Centenary, these theatres of operation have not been fully integrated into the narrative of the Great War. Our outlook is still largely euro-centred, not to mention focused on Western Europe. Recent studies, however, have questioned the chronological and geographical limits of the Great War, inviting us to rewrite the history of the conflict in a resolutely global perspective. Thus Cloé Drieu and Julie d'Andurain invite us to look at the interactions between the Ottoman, Russian and French colonial empires during the conflict, to rethink the relationship between centre and periphery within belligerent powers. In the same way, Pierre Purseigle and Olivier Compagnon insist on the necessity to consider the circulatory phenomena in their full geographical extent in order to rethink the Great War in a connected perspective.
This decentralisation going beyond Western Europe and beyond the usual places and moments of the conflict contribute to outline the contours of a "Greater War" whose global history is yet to be written. Focusing on other fronts, other combat conditions and other configurations of actors reveals the existence of a field favourable to an enlarged approach of the conflict, where geography, geopolitics and ethnology would be associated with history to highlight the impact of the war on territories thus far neglected. For example, as environmental history renews our understanding of the 20th century, outlining how historians might better take into account the relationships between fighters and their operating areas on a global scale. If integrated into analyses, seas, deserts or steppes would help overcome the "European" dichotomy between lowland war and mountain war.
A generation of young researchers has been engaged in the studies of cases and phenomena that challenge traditional national categories. Nonetheless, these approaches remain dependent on regional and national case studies, a framework that cannot be ignored. Furthermore, the access to many sources and their comparison is conditioned by the knowledge of several languages. The delicate but invigorating articulation between "global" and "local" does not seem possible without a pooling of efforts and a confrontation of perspectives. This is the objective of the workshop organised by the “Greater War” network in Brest, at the Université de Bretagne : to help fuel the dialectical effort of young researchers studying these fronts and theatres often seen as « secondary » or « peripheral ».
Postgraduate students and early career scholars (from second year Master’s students to scholars whose doctorate has been awarded within the last three years) are invited to participate in round table discussions about papers which will have previously circulated amongst all participants. Each participant will comment the work of another early career researcher, with the moderation of senior scholars.
These papers may address one or many of the indicated theatres (amongst others):
- Middle East Front (Caucasus, Iraq, Egypt, etc.)
- Balkans, Macedonia
- Atlantic (naval issues)
- Eastern Front
- Latin America
- Asia
- Africa
The organisers will prefer papers addressing the neglected weight of these theatres in strategic decision-making and in the development of a coalition war with global implications. These theatres of operation must also be considered individually, reflecting the specific nature of combat and the living conditions of European or indigenous forces. We will also welcome papers proposing a finer geographical approach, considering both urban/logistical and social/human aspects of these fronts, such as the study of cities like Salonika or Athens.
This decentring would not be complete without an insistence on the home front and on logistical links: how the fronts were fed and furnished, with networks stemming from the metropolis but also between peripheral theatres themselves. Through the example of Saint-Nazaire, Erwan Le Gall has recently shown that researchers can draw new studies on European ports understood as interfaces receiving human and material reinforcements and redistributing them to the front. The aim of the workshop is therefore to go beyond a simple reunion of studies on different fronts but to question the interconnections between these fronts and that which has been perceived as the epicentre of the conflict. Finally, the interconnection of these fronts would not be fully apprehended if the circulation of images, objects, and narratives of these distant wars beyond the seas and oceans and their persistence or obliteration in the after-war period were not considered.
Communication proposals (to a maximum of 300 words, accompanied by institutional affiliation and current year of study) should be sent to uneplusgrandeguerre@gmail.com before 20 February, 2019.
After being notified of their acceptance by the scientific committee, the papers (between 6000 and 8000 words) are expected by August 2019, to ensure their circulation before the event, which will take place on 19-29 September 2019 at the Faculté Victor Segalen (Brest).
In order to include a maximum of participants, we welcome videoconference presentations and questions via online live transmission.
We invite participants to explore funding opportunities offered by their home institutions. The organisation will cover accommodation fees, depending on available funds.
The publication of articles issued from these debates is envisaged.
Confirmed keynote : John Horne (Trinity College, Dublin)

 

CfP: Legacies. 11th Conference of the International Society for First World War Studies
11 - 13 September 2019, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK.
Deadline: 28 February 2019.
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.
We are thrilled to announce Dr Michelle Moyd (Indiana University – Bloomington) and Dr Kristine Alexander (University of Lethbridge) will give keynote lectures.
We invite scholars at all career stages to submit proposals for 20-minute conference papers, 10-minute ‘lightning presentations’ or posters. Suggested themes include:
• Colonial and imperial aftermaths
• Post-war disability
• Care for veterans and families
• Childhood in the aftermath of war
• Gendered legacies of war
• Captivity and repatriation
• Demobilisation and civilian reintegration
• Grief, bereavement, burial, graves and cemeteries
• Faith and religion in the aftermath of the war
• Memory, memorialisation and commemoration
• Artistic and literary legacies of the war in both new and traditional forms
• Continuity and change in science, medicine and technology
• Postbellum psychology and philosophy
• Effects on the landscape and environment
• Humanitarianism and peace movements
• New and continuing conflicts and revolutions
• Internationalism and transnationalism by individuals, organisations and states
• Economic transformations
• Military learning and innovation
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 be a roundtable discussion on teaching the war. Those who teach the First World War in schools, universities and in the heritage sector, and are interested in participating in the roundtable, should submit a proposal that outlines an example from their practice that they would like to share in a 10-minute presentation.
There will be a mentoring programme to help postgraduate and early career researchers develop their papers for publication. Those who wish to be considered for the programme should indicate their interest when submitting their proposal.
Conference paper, lightning presentation, poster and teaching roundtable proposals should be approximately 300 words in length and accompanied by a short CV. Please submit proposals, indicating the type of presentation, to isfwws2019@gmail.com by 28 February 2019.
All presenters will be expected to become members of the Society before the conference date. The working language of the conference and all submissions is English. The organisers intend to publish the proceedings of this conference.

In 1914, imploding European powers committed murder and mayhem on an unforeseen scale around the world with enormous and irreversible global consequences. This bloody, sometimes even fratricidal, struggle wrought unprecedented destruction and death; by the time this disaster was “over,” a new world emerged beyond the imaginations of the perpetrators, participants and witnesses of this era. Post-armistice humanity around the globe was changed and was left heavily scarred, anxious, and full of economic, political, and cultural uncertainty. Many reflected about the recent catastrophe and sought to engage entire societies in the formation of a new order. This re-building and re-imagining could be seen from the local to the national to international levels, and included the process of constructing a lasting memory of 1914–1918 and of creating narratives about the conflict. Undoubtedly, the years of the Great War are an important caesura in the historiography of the new world.
The centuries-old empires of Europe collapsed following the 1918 truce, but the agile colonial powers insisted on clinging to their overseas territories and their colonial clashes continued. For some historians there were not two world wars, but a twenty-year-long intermission that festered with uncertainties and anxieties. What is more, despite the fact that the Great War was over in the West, warfare continued for months and even years in Central, Eastern, and Southern Europe, including the territories of the former Ottoman Empire. The War That Never Ended Conference invites papers engaging with the multilayered complexities, lasting and prolonged global contributions of this period, including the cultural, political, and social history of the immediate and prolonged aftermath of the First World War, its revolutions and birth of nations and states. We invite:
-  a particular focus on the responses of the politicians, intellectuals, artists, as well as ordinary citizens with the expectation that social history profoundly informs political and economic history;
-  papers focusing on and revealing the ensuing violence, mayhem and destruction in the aftermath of the war;
-  papers considering the creation of new cultural and political trends in the hothouse of the period;
-  a consideration of whether the term “Lost Generation”  coined by Ernest Hemingway can be used in reference to East-Central Europe and the Ottoman Empire.
- papers on post-imperial settlements, adjustments and consolidations within the geographies of the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires to further our comparative understanding of post-imperial national projects and practices. Comparisons may consider areas and issues such the rule of law, the role of religion, minorities, (de)democratization, governance, as well as cultural, economic and political clashes in the Middle East and Eastern Europe.
-  explorations of the post-Great War formation of new states and their relationships with cultural diversity, de/colonization, democracy, and how they all interfaced with the impending clashes of World War II. Together, these inquiries can enhance our understanding of contemporary brutal conflicts such as the refugee crisis, the obstacles for democratization and the impending rise of authoritarianism in post-Empire geographies. While illuminating the post-Great War period, we hope The War That Never Ended Conference will also contribute to our understanding of the present.
Accompanying events: The conference will be accompanied by keynote lectures delivered by experienced scholars in this field, as well as a source-studies seminar in the Kraków  Archives and Museums. As a part of our workshop, we are planning to prepare a special tour to WWI battlefields in order to visit selected military cemeteries created to commemorate the fallen soldiers in Galicia, and to see some of the splendid examples of war monuments designed by then famous artists. The excursion will only take place in favourable weather conditions. As an alternative, we are planning a visit to Kraków’s museums.
Procedure: Abstracts, no longer than 300 words (including title, research questions, a brief description of sources and methods), as well as contact details, name and institutional affiliation, should be sent to: krakowpostWWI@pratt.edu. The deadline for abstract submission is 1st June 2019. The complete lineup of speakers will be announced by the end of June 2019.
Conference fee: The conference fee is 250 PLN (=€60/$65), which includes: participation, conference materials, participation in the planned excursion, refreshments, lunches and dinners. Please note that neither the costs of travels to and from Kraków nor
 of accommodation are covered by the organizers (however, we will be happy to assist you in looking for a hotel near the conference venue).
