Final CfP: Business as usual? Institutional impact in the First World War

Wednesday, 2 March 2016 in the Senate Room, University of Glasgow.

This day conference will bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines to examine the role of institutional involvement in an individual’s experience of the First World War. We will consider submissions for all types of institution from educational establishments, churches, professional bodies, clubs and societies, to commercial and industrial companies and other workplaces. We seek to understand how overarching corporate entities with localised institutional identities impacted participation in the First World War and how the war changed or redefined these discrete communities.

The remit is wide-ranging and we welcome submissions from academic researchers in subjects like History, Archaeology, Sociology, Anthropology, and Theology, as well as individuals working in cultural heritage management, museums, archives, schools, corporate history, and community research projects. Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be sent to Jennifer.Novotny@glasgow.ac.uk by Monday, 4 January 2016.
