About this event

‘A total global tragedy’: Neutrals, belligerents and the transformation of the First World War

In this public lecture, Prof. Maartje Abbenhuis argues for the necessity of integrating the experiences and perspectives of neutral, non-belligerent and subject communities in the history of the First World War, which is still so often cast as ‘Europe’s War’. Using examples from around the world, she shows how the transformation of the conflict into a ‘total war’ was a process, whose dynamics involved governments, communities, groups and individuals alike on a global and local scale. These dynamics also explain how fundamental the First World War was to shaping the contours of the highly violent twentieth century.

Date and time: Wednesday 4 August, 6.15pm

Venue: Lecture theatre G36, Old Government House (Building 102-G36), 24 Princes Street, University of Auckland, City Campus

Drinks & nibbles will be served in Old Government House, Members Lounge following the lecture

Kia whakamana i te tangata – upholding the mana and tapu of all people, is a core value for Te Kura Tangata (the Faculty of Arts). We value and respect people without regard to their ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexuality, political beliefs and status. As a faculty we are committed to mātauranga Māori, as the foundational knowledge of Aotearoa New Zealand, and actively seek meaningful ways to reflect this in our faculty.
