November 8-10, 2018
Pyle Center, 702 Langdon St. (Madison)
In commemoration of the end of World War I and the 20th anniversary of the Center for German & European Studies, this conference explores the social, legislative, and cultural legacy of population displacement unleashed by the ravages of wars of the past century, with a particular emphasis on how it has transformed European society. European and American scholars from the fields of history, literature, arts scholarship, and sociology will convene at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to explore the political, economic, cultural, and social implications of war and migration, both forced and voluntary.
Sponsored by the UW Center for European Studies and UW Center for German and European Studies
