The “All Quiet on the Eastern Front?” research workshop aims at an exchange of practical and methodological experience between scholars form the different fields of historical studies who focus on social history of WWI in Central and Eastern Europe. The main research problem that should be addressed by the workshop participants is the question how WWI influenced the lives of individuals, social groups and local communities. This interaction, should, however, be deeply rooted in the specific (cultural, religious or familial) characteristics of the investigated subject. We are interested particularly in research projects capturing the phenomenon of WWI in broader cultural and chronological context, dealing with the war-connected aspects of social continuity and change, as well as comparing and contrasting the experience of groups and individuals across different regions of Europe.
Our research workshop will create the opportunity for the young scholars in different stages of research to present their projects to colleagues and experts as well as to obtain hints, criticism and feedback. The workshop proceedings in form of several papers are going to be published in a special issue of “Prace Historyczne” Zeszyty Naukowe UJ (‘Historical Works’ Academic Journal of the Jagiellonian University). The workshop is going to be accompanied by keynote lectures delivered by experienced scholars in the field, as well as a source studies seminar.
Abstracts, no longer than 300 words, including the title, research questions, description of sources and methods should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for abstract submission is May 5th, 2014. The results of the enrollment will be announced by the end of May 2014.
