Applications are invited for a conference exploring the public reaction to conscription during the First World War.
Papers relating to Ireland, the British Dominions, the French and Russian Empires and the Central Powers are invited, as well as those relating to the Suffrage and Pacifist movements.
Although papers are invited dealing with any aspect of the public reaction to conscription, a key theme will be the reaction among groups peripheral to the main belligerents, based on geography, politics, religion or ethnicity.
Applications from PhD students and Early Career Researchers are particularly welcome.
Submissions are welcome from all relevant disciplines, and inter-disciplinary discussion is very much encouraged.
Papers will be 20 minutes in length, followed by 10 minutes of questions and answers.
Please send titles and abstracts (300-400 words) to Robin Adams by 15 August 2017
