Invitation: “Narrating the First World War – Experiences and Reports from Transregional Perspectives”
How did civilians live and work at the home front? How did artists and writers document their experiences in the trenches? How did the war influence people outside of Europe?
The Max Weber Stiftung and the Forum Transregionale Studien would like to kindly invite you to the WeberWorldCafé “Narrating the First World War – Experiences and Reports from Transregional Perspectives”, an exclusive event with international experts hosted at and in cooperation with the Deutsches Historisches Museum (DHM) in Berlin on September 16, 2014.
During the afternoon experts and participants will discuss the events of the First World War from an interdisciplinary and transregional perspective. With the help of primary sources the guests will be given the opportunity to explore the impact of the war on everyday life of contemporaries all over the world.
The WeberWorldCafé will take place at the Deutsches Historisches Museum, Unter den Linden 2, 10117 Berlin, from 2-6 p.m. It will be introduced by a 45-minute guided tour through the First World War exhibition of the DHM.
