    The Allied Occupation of Germany Revisited

    New Research on the Western Zones of Occupation, 1945-1949

    The Allied occupation of Western Germany after the Second World War has recently seen a revival of interest among historians. This two-day international conference will showcase new research from scholars based across the globe and provide a forum for the presentation of innovative approaches to the history of the three western zones of occupation. It also aims to stimulate dialogue between historians of the different zones of occupation and so bring together hitherto almost entirely segregated historiographies.

    Reconstruction and Resettlement in the Wake of War

    This two-day workshop will examine the interlinked processes of post-war urban reconstruction and population resettlement. Extending chronologically from the American Civil War to the mid-twentieth century, and covering a broad array of geographic locations, from North America to Europe, the Middle East and East Asia, it explores how war-torn urban environments have been rebuilt and repopulated. From the mid-nineteenth century, towns and cities increasingly became the pivots of large-scale military action, and urban residents from Atlanta to Paris, Warsaw and Tokyo felt the full force of modern weaponry. But as destruction and displacement gave way to reconstruction and resettlement, the residents of these war-afflicted urban centres faced further challenges. By exploring how they returned and reconstructed their shattered homes, this workshop seeks to understand the long-term effects of conflict on the social dynamics of communities.

    Order in War. Gendarmeries and Police facing WWI

    During the First World War, as peacetime economies were transformed into war-focused production systems, European law- enforcement agencies had to adapt to new conditions. The wartime reorganizations of police forces need to be understood comparatively. The First World War set a series of similar requirements in all European countries at war and, to some extent, in some neutral countries also. This conference aims to open new perspectives rather than bringing full and final responses. This is a particularly broad, complex and new historiographic field: the history of law enforcement institutions in Europe in a specific context - specifically total war, the kind of conflict that significantly fostered forms of disorder. We will focus particularly on the diversity of forces, from military to civil police, posted or not on the front line, in belligerent or neutral countries, in metropoles or empires.
