XLIV International Congress of Military History
2 September - 7 September
The XLIV ICMH Congress will be hosted by the Israeli Commission in Jerusalem from Sunday 2nd until Friday 7th of September 2018. The central theme of the Congress is ‘The creation of New States and the collapse of Old Empires in the XXth century’. The year 2018 coincides with two important events: the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the State of Israel and the end of the WWI Centenary. This double anniversary offers a good opportunity to discuss both the end of WWI and the large number of new states which have been created afterwards as also the birth of new states in the context of wars of liberation and independence.
The Congress will take place in the Ye’arim Hotel which is situated near Jerusalem on one of the highest peaks fully immersed in nature’s charm. For the PhD candidates a special PhD-Workshop will be elaborated in cooperation with the Education Commission. Especially for these young historians, convenient accommodation opportunities at lower prices will be provided.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is 1 March 2018.
