Call for papers: Peace making after the First World War

The National Archives, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Historians, the University of Strathclyde, the International History Department at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and the British International History Group invite submissions for the upcoming conference ‘Peace making after the First World War 1919 – 1923’.

Taking place from Thursday 27 to Friday 28 June 2019, the first day of the conference will be held at The National Archives and includes a keynote lecture by Professor David Stevenson. The second day of the conference will be hosted by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Historians at Lancaster House, and will see a range of experts speak on aspects of the peace making process followed by a round table discussion.

Dr Juliette Desplat, Head of Modern Overseas, Intelligence and Security, at The National Archives said:

‘The conference aims to focus not only on the Treaty of Versailles, but also on the other treaties that marked the formal end of hostilities: Saint-Germain (Austria), Neuilly (Bulgaria), Trianon (Hungary), Sèvres (Ottoman Empire) and Lausanne (Turkey).

‘We are delighted that, as part of this, the conference will include an exhibition of The National Archives’ unique collection of certified copies of all the treaties, alongside a selection of other materials.’

Submissions are invited for 20-minute papers, or panels of three papers, to be presented on the first day of the conference, on any aspect of the peace making process. Abstracts should be submitted by Saturday 1 December. See full details of the call for papers.
