University of Roehampton, London: Thursday 2 September - Saturday 4 September 2021

The German History Society in the UK and Ireland, which publishes the journal German History, is pleased to announce the publication of the exciting programme for the 2021 annual conference being hosted by the University of Roehampton in London.

Please find the exciting line up of speakers, papers and panels, here.

This will include our keynote speakers:

Hedwig Röckelein (Georg-August-Universität Gottingen): 'Inclusion/exclusion: Can sociology explain monastic norms and practices?'.

Yair Mintzker (Princeton University): 'The Case of Ahasverus in Hamburg: The Confessional Origins of the Legend of the Wandering Jew'.

Doris Bergen (University of Toronto): '"A Priest with a Nazi Collar": Perspectives on the Wehrmacht Chaplains and the Holocaust'.

Registration to attend the 2021 Annual Conference at the University of Roehampton, London, has now closed.

Information for travel and virtual attendance instructions are available here.

A campus map is also available.

Details of how to book our suggested conference accommodation, and to book for the conference dinner on campus at Grove House on Friday 3 September, can be found here.

If you have any questions, and/or to register to attend the conference, please email Dr Sebastian Gehrig.

Speakers and panellists do not need to register, as such, but we would ask that they, too, notify the local organisers (on the same email address) if they, for example, only plan to attend certain days of the conference, as this will help us to manage numbers.

More details to follow shortly.

We look forward to welcoming you all to our next annual conference soon!
