Trails of the Great War 1914-2014

LSE one-day conference

The centenary year of the outbreak of the Great War began with a serious debate over the war guilt question. Since then the focus has been on the nature of the war itself. History, it seems, is less about rationalising past events than about accessing the emotional experience of those who lived through them. The aim of this conference is to move beyond the parochial and to broaden the view of the British debate.

Speakers at the conference include:

Zygmunt Bauman, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, University of Leeds.

Philip Bobbitt, Herbert Wechsler Professor of Jurisprudence at Columbia University. Director of Centre for National Security, Columbia University.

Lord Glasman, Senior Lecturer in Political Theory, Director of the Faith and Citizenship Programme, London Metropolitan University.

Robert Gerwarth, Professor of Modern History, Director of the Centre for War Studies, University College Dublin.

John Horne, Professor of Modern European History, Trinity College Dublin.

Professor Margaret MacMillan, Warden St Anthony’s College, Oxford.

Jesse Norman is Member of Parliament for Hereford and South Herefordshire.

Richard Sennett, Professor of Sociology at the LSE, Co-Chair of the New Urban Charter Programme for UN Habitat.
