Conference: 14 to 17 July 2015
For the first time the University of Newcastle, Australia, will host the 24th biennial meeting of the Australasian Association for European History (AAEH).
The conference will be held on the 14 to 17 July 2015. Newcastle is a vibrant city on the coast of Australia, two hours drive north of Sydney.
Our themes for 2015 Conference coincide with anniversaries of a number of key events in Europe, and deal broadly with war, violence and aftermaths, including: the bi-centenary of the battle of Waterloo; the centenary of the landing at Gallipoli; the centenary of the Armenian Genocide; the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War; and the 20th anniversary of the massacre at Srebrenica.
The conference encourages reconsideration of Europe's violent past – national, regional, religious, economic, ethnic, social, cultural, generational, and international. The Organising Committee particularly invites proposals for papers that address the history of European conflict in terms of its repercussions for the non-European world. Papers on Early Modern Europe are also welcome, as are specialists in the First World War.
The conference will be structured in parallel panels, plenary sessions and round tables. Each panel presentation should not exceed 20 minutes.
