"Histories of 1914. Debates and Use of the Origins of World War One in Southeastern Europe"

CAS 19/05/2014

Southeast European Dialogues
Center for Southeast European Studies
University of Graz
20-22 November 2014

The annual conference of the Centre for Southeast European Studies “Southeast European Dialogues” will be devoted this year to the centenary of the beginning of World War One. Rather than looking at the war itself and its causes, the conference will explore the way the war is remembered in Southeastern Europe. The narratives of the causes and origins of the war have been subject to reinterpretation and renewed interest over the past year and the conference will map out the debates over how to remember the beginning of World War One, the way in which these narrative fit into existing national historiographies and how larger historical debates fit into the regional context, as well as how these debates have evolved over time and interrelate with the present.

If you are interested in contributing to the conference, please submit a 300-500 word abstract and a CV by 31 May 2014 to .

A committee of the co-organisers will subsequently select around 10-20 participants based on the abstracts and academic qualifications. Accepted applicants will need to submit draft papers of 6,000-8,000 words one month prior to the conference. The drafts will be circulated among conference participants.

Accommodation and board as well as transport to and from Graz will be covered for participants (conditional on the submission of the draft paper by the deadline).
