Call for Papers

To mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War in November 1918, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and Flinders University, Australia, invite speakers for an international conference to be held in Singapore from 5-7 December 2018.

The conference will particularly interest those actively researching imperial and colonial history; the British imperial experiences of the end of the Great War and its aftermath, including its remembering and forgetting; and the relationships between war, society and culture. More specifically the organisers are interested in papers dealing with themes ranging from colonial responses, loyalties and disloyalties, gender roles, class and race relations, migration and displacement, collective identities and memorialisation and memory; as well as art history, especially music, theatre, film and photography, as well as the perspectives of artists.

We will be selecting abstracts with a view to subsequent publication (you can see a list of the resulting publications from Singapore I here). Please send a 200-word abstract and a biography of about 150 words (in one Word file) to all organisers, mwalsh@ntu.edu.sgandrekos.varnava@flinders.edu.auromain.fathi@flinders.edu.au and  margaret.hutchison@acu.edu.au, by 15 March 2018.
