Civilians and War, 1914-1945

A CHASE Postgraduate Conference

University of Sussex, 11-12 April 2013

Postgraduate researchers are warmly invited to join us at the University of Sussex for an interdisciplinary conference on the theme of civilians and war between 1914 and 1945. This will be an excellent opportunity for postgraduate students to present their work in a supportive environment and meet other researchers with similar academic interests.

This conference is for students at a CHASE (Consortium for Humanities and Arts in the South East) institution. These are the Open University; the Courtauld Institute of Art; Goldsmiths; and the Universities of East Anglia, Essex, Kent and Sussex.

We expect to cover a broad range of themes which could include, but will not be restricted to: resistance, emotions, family, gender, and the media. We would particularly welcome papers with an international perspective.

We are delighted that Professor Rod Kedward
will be delivering a keynote address at the end of the conference.


Proposals should be no longer than 250 words and include a brief synopsis of the proposed topic. Please also let us know what university you are studying at and the stage of your research. Papers should last around 20 minutes.

We are able to offer travel bursaries for speakers.

Deadline for proposals 28 February 2013

We will notify respondents by early March.

Please submit papers to Rose Holmes or Paul Weir
