AAEH XXII Conference Perth : Conference on the contradictory nature of Europe in modern times Other events...
The history of Modern Europe presents a multitude of disturbing contradictions. The Old Continent has engendered the most uplifting visions of human potential and the darkest dystopias in human experience. It has laboured to produce its colossal social, cultural and artistic heritage and has unleashed unimaginable destruction on itself and throughout the world. For better or worse this paradox lies at the centre of Europe's historical imagination. Making sense of it pushes the historian's craft to its limits.

Between 11-14 July 2011 historians hailing from a wide variety of locations and institutions will come together in Perth. In the beautiful settings of the campuses of the University of Western Australia and Murdoch University they will discuss, argue, and share research findings and pose the infinite questions studying the history of Europe demands.

This conference will concern itself with the contradictory nature of Europe in modern times.
Speaker(s) Omer Bartov, Mary Bosworth, John Dickie, Jürgen Förster, Robert Gerwarth, David Marples, etc.
Location UWA: University Club & Arts; Murdoch: Worship Centre, Education and Humanities
