Empire, Armistice and Aftermath The British Empire at the ‘End’ of the Great War

  • Nanyang Technical University Singapore (map)

Our colleagues are hosting a conference in Singapore this December that might be of interest to our members. Please see the Call for Papers below. 

By the end of the Great War the British Empire had expanded its reach across more territory and was in control of more people than ever before. The implications and reverberations of this transformation can still be felt today. This conference focusses specifically on an examination of the social and cultural reactions within the old and new colonial societies at the end of the first global conflict and in the inter-war period. 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.

Keynote speakers confirmed include Professor Panikos Panayi, De Montfort University, Leicester, Professor Heather Streets-Salter, Northeastern University and Christopher Latham, Australian National University. For more information please visit the conference website:
