International Conference 'The Stage of War' (March 26 and 27, 2020)

Deadline: 
Tuesday, 1 October, 2019 (All day)

The conference ‘The Stage of War’ focuses on academic and popular representations of war and other large-scale conflicts.The unique aim of this conference is to stimulate an exchange between academic and popular approaches to the representation of violent conflicts. Instead of just criticizing popular historical culture, we call on academic historians to suggest what a responsible approach to the past might entail. This two-day conference is comprised of academic lectures, presentations, roundtable discussions, and a battlefield tour in Rotterdam by military history specialists. The organization committee consists of Prof.dr. Maria Grever, Prof.dr. Stijn Reijnders, Prof.dr. Jeroen Jansz, Prof.dr. Kees Ribbens, dr. Susan Hogervorst, Siri Driessen, Pieter van den Heede, dr. Laurie Slegtenhorst, Lise Zurné, dr. Robbert-Jan Adriaansen and Prof.dr. Franciska de Jong. Full call for papers can be found here. Please send abstracts of max. 300 words and a short biographical statement of max. 50 words to thestageofwar@eshcc.eur.nl before October 1, 2019. All abstracts will be reviewed. Notification of acceptance: 1 December 2019.
