Few events are so ingrained into the American psyche and popular culture as the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Despite the attack’s centrality in America’s road to war narrative, most Americans know very little about the causes of the event. Our abridged understanding goes something like this: on December 7, 1941, the empire of Japan launched a sneak attack against the United States for no reason. Japan’s ambassadors had been engaged in discussions with American diplomats as a smokescreen, masking the “evil empire’s” true intentions—world domination.

Mit der Niederlage Harald Godwinsons in der Schlacht bei Hastings am 14. Oktober 1066 und dem Sieg Wilhelms, Herzogs der Normandie, endete die angelsächsische Herrschaft in Britannien. Am Weihnachtstag 1066 wird Wilhelm in der Westminsterabtei in London zum König der Engländer gekrönt. Er sollte der Letzte sein, der England von außen einnehmen konnte, und ging so als Wilhelm "der Eroberer" in die Geschichte ein.

Programme:

Der Workshop möchte im Rahmen der historisch-politischen Bildung in der Bundeswehr für das Thema "Religion und Gewalt" sensibilisieren.

The politics of ethnic violence attained new dimensions during the First World War. Not only were crimes committed by foreign armies against the "enemy" population, but violence by organs of the state against sections of their own inhabitants also reached unprecedented dimensions and bequeathed to the post-war period the ideal of a purportedly homogenous nationalistic people. During the Balkan wars of 1912-13 it had already come to unilaterally forced as well as negotiated population shifts.

This conference will showcase the latest historical research on the emergence and the part played by the tank in the First World War, with leading experts from Britain, Germany and the United States outlining some of the most interesting and lesser known aspects of the history of this new weapon of war.

Conference Venue:  The Tank Museum (Lecture Hall), Bovington, Dorset BH20 6JG, UK

Conference Fee:  £60 (Standard Day Rate)  |  £50 (Student Rate)  -  Fees include an annual ticket, which gives you admission to the Museum for one year

Die interdisziplinäre internationale Tagung nimmt im Vorfeld des 400. Jahrestages des Pragers Fenstersturzes von 1618 den Dreißigjährigen Krieg in einer neuen Perspektive in den Blick und stellt die Frage: Was hat sich durch diesen Krieg grundlegend verändert? Statt einer apodiktischen Gegenüberstellung von Krieg und Frieden werden der Westfälische Frieden und die Nachkriegszeit somit nicht als reine Überwindung, sondern auch als Folge und Ergebnis des Krieges betrachtet.

Ende August 2016 jährt sich der Rumänienfeldzug 1916/17 zum hundertsten Mal. In diesem Feldzug standen deutsche, bulgarische, österreichisch-ungarische und türkische Truppen rumänischen, russischen und serbischen Soldaten gegenüber. Trotz dieser Multinationalität war der Kriegsschauplatz im öffentlichen Bewusstsein der westlichen Welt über Jahrzehnte hinweg nahezu vergessen.
