The Global History of War and Empire

In collaboration with the Amsterdam School of Historical Studies, the Research School for Political History, the Netherlands Institute for Military History, the Faculty of Military Sciences of the Netherlands Defence Academy, and the University of Amsterdam, the Society for the History of War (SHoW) will organise a major international conference on the global history of war and empire.

This will be a face-to-face conference in Amsterdam on 24-25 November 2022.

This conference seeks to provide a space for a measured and informed analysis of war and empire, taking a global and transnational view of the place of violence in the making and remaking of colonial states and societies.
