German_trenches_in_GaruaOn Friday and Saturday this week (13-14 June 2014), NUI Galway hosts an international workshop on Small Nations and Colonial Peripheries in World War I. With a keynote address from Michael Neiberg (U.S. Army War College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania) and speakers from as far afield as Germany, Luxembourg, France, Spain, Britain, the United States, Kazakhstan and India, the purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum of debate for transnational and comparative approaches to the history of small European nations and Europe’s colonial peripheries in World War 1 in the context of the epochal changes brought about by the collapse of large imperial states. You can download the full programme here (pdf), or contact the workshop organisers, Gearóid Barry, Enrico Dal Lago and Róisín Healy, for further details.
