The Great War from Below

Within the framework of the research project The Great War from Below the National Archives organizes an international colloquium on 3 March 2015 entitled The Great War from Below: between individual life courses and collective experiences. New sources, new perspectives.

The project studies the impact of the First World War on Belgian society and particular social groups via a sources analysis shedding light on personal experiences.

The colloquium pursues four goals:

Identifying new research instruments.
Analysing initiatives already taken by different actors in the field of social history of the First World War.
Raising awareness about sources that were only scarcely used so far.
Presenting current research (methods – aims).
Registration: Before 25 February 2015 via
