'1940'. An International Conference on the Second World War

This is the third in a rolling programme of events which intends to explore, scrutinise and analyse the ways in which we discuss and commemorate the lived experience of the Second World War. Second World War Studies at Edinburgh - which was set up by Wendy Ugolini, Toby Kelly and Jeremy Crang - aims to bring together researchers in the field to discuss their work and to flag up themes which will be of importance during the 80th anniversary commemorations of the conflict.

The conference will be held at the University of Edinburgh, 4-5 June 2020.

In order to encourage early career researchers, there will be no registration fee for this conference (but participants will be expected to cover their own costs).

Further details will be published shortly.

This event is supported by the School of History, Classics & Archaeology and the School of Social and Political Science at the University of Edinburgh, and The Royal Society of Edinburgh.
