    The effects of World War I on the christian churches

    11 November 1918 saw the end of the First World War, known at the time as the “Great War” (1914-1918) for its global scale, extreme destructivity and unseen casualty rates. On the one hand, wars evoke heroism and patriotism and bring people and groups to alter their mental boundaries and abilities. On the other hand, wars also elicit hatred, envy and violent behaviour, the settling of hidden accounts, the abandonment of ethical standards, and deep divisions and confrontations between families and societies. Since effects of the first world conflict were enormous and the shock waves were felt for years and generations to come, the question arises about the impact of the Great War on religion and the established churches.

    The way out. Microhistories of flight from Nazi Germany

    In recent years, the microhistorical turn in Holocaust history has placed increasing importance on individual practices and experiences by exploring new, nominative mass sources and combining a prosopographical approach with quantitative analysis of individual trajectories. This international conference will study the broad theme of the flight of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany in the 1930s and their trajectories during the war and its aftermath from multiple perspectives.

    Orient oder Rom?

    Prehistory, history and reception of a historiographical myth (1880Ð1930)

    Today the question “Orient oder Rom?” is no longer a topical issue in medieval art history, although a persuasive answer has never been formulated. One of the reasons for this oblivion deals with the controversial figure of Josef Strzygowski, who in 1901 published about the question his pivotal volume, nowadays discredited for its racial and proto-nazi judgement.However, the question “Orient oder Rom?” concerns not only with Josef Strzygowski: the prodromes of this critical concepts goes back to the nineteenth century, when the Russian, Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires fought to control territories. The conference aims to distance from the sole Strzygowski’s perspective and to comprehend and rewrite the story of a pivotal concept for both art historiography and cultural identity.

    Citizens for Empire?

    French Citizenship and Colonization in the 20th century (until 1946)

    Les dimensions impériales de la citoyenneté française sont à la fois bien et mal connues. Des travaux récents ont rappelé que la césure entre citoyens et sujets s’est construite de façon progressive et par ajustements entre les enjeux de pouvoir à l’échelle locale et impériale, les logiques juridiques et les revendications portées par des acteurs mus par des intérêts différents, sinon contradictoires. La multiplication des recherches d’histoire sociale, politique et culturelle de la colonisation permet désormais d’écrire une histoire plurivoque des dimensions impériales de la citoyenneté française en se demandant comment tous ces acteurs formulent la question qui sert de titre au colloque « quels citoyens pour l’empire ? » et quelles réponses ils lui apportent, ou comment ils font en sorte d’empêcher qu’elle soit débattue.

    Crossing Borders: Intellectuals of the Right and Politics in Europe and Latin America

    Transnational Perspectives

    During the interwar period, authoritarian movements and regimes of the right - both of the "old" authoritarian and of the "new" radical varieties - professed their faith in national values but at the same time saw themselves as national agents of an otherwise international intellectual and political wave. Starting from the mid-1920s, a growing sense of shared goals, commonality of vision, and sense of history-making mission led them to draw on each other for inspiration and support. It soon became clear that these movements and regimes embraced ideas from each other, actively studying each other’s discourses and initiatives in the political field. The conference aims to promote a different understanding of the role of intellectuals of the interwar right who perceived themselves as transnational agents “at the service of an idea”.

    Museum global?

    Multiple Perspectives on Art, 1904–1950

    Currently, profound societal upheavals require a repositioning of the concept of "Modern Art."

    Global Modernism(s)

    Approaches to trans-local / trans-cultural / trans-civilizational dimension of Modernist movements

    The trans-cultural and trans-civilizational potential of Modernism lies at the roots of our present globalized condition; on the other hand, internal contradictions of Modernism mark the limitations of our present consciousness. This is the reason why it is important to reinterpret Modernism from a planetary perspective. Our aim in this issue of "Planeta Literatur" is to foster the debate on how to approach Modernism understood not only as a transnational, but also a trans-cultural and a trans-civilizational movement.

    Colloquium - History

    Conflict studies and new military history

    Crossed perspectives on the war era, 1914-1945

    Depuis quelques années, les études consacrées à la guerre et aux conflits connaissent un véritable essor. Avec les « global studies » ou « histoire globale », elles occupent le devant de la scène historiographique. Ce renouveau de l’histoire militaire a pour corollaire sa transformation en profondeur tant sur le plan méthodologique que sur le plan épistémologique. Cet intérêt a également eu un impact profond sur la compréhension des deux guerres mondiales qui sont de plus en plus considérées comme constituant une période historique en soi, « l’ère de la guerre totale ». Cette université d’été veut offrir aux participants un panorama des recherches actuelles dans le domaine de l’histoire économique, sociale, culturelle et militaire des deux guerres mondiales. Elle réunit des étudiants européens de doctorat et de master 2 qui travaillent sur la thématique de la guerre au sens large et leur permet de présenter leurs projets de recherche à des spécialistes internationalement reconnus.

    The Aftermath of Suffrage

    What Happened After the Vote Was Won?

    Ce colloque ambitionne d'apporter de nouveaux éclairages en histoire du genre et en histoire politique en s'intéressant à la période consécutive à l'obtention du droit de vote par les femmes britanniques. Il s'agira de considérer comment les héritages contestés des mouvements pour le droite de vote des femmes et pour le suffrage universel ont influé sur les débats dans l'entre-deux-guerres sur les questions de représentation politique, de réforme démocratique, de division sexuelle du travail en politique et d'inclusion très graduelle des femmes dans l'arène politique nationale en Grande-Bretagne.

    Power, Institutions, and Global Market

    Mechanisms and Foundations of Word-Wide Economic Integration, ca. 1850-1930

    Literature on economic globalisation between 1850 and 1930 focuses primarily on the development of the volume of foreign trade between various nation states. Only rarely was this period examined from the perspective of economic actors below the nation state and by explicitly studying the role of the institutional framework which shaped – and was shaped – by their enterprises. Our conference will address these issues, bringing together scholars from economic and business history, global and world history, and history of law.
