This event will focus on containment as a result of war and the lessons we can learn.

About this Event:
War Crisis and Confinement: Lessons from the Twentieth Century – online speed lectures

While the confinement which has taken place in 2020 may have no historical precedent in terms of its globality, containment as a result of war occurred regularly during the twentieth century. Using the example of the First World War and the Yugoslav conflict of the 1990s, two historians, together with De Montfort University (DMU) PhD students, will tackle these issues. A panel discussion will follow.

Panikos Panayi, Professor of European History, will focus upon the internment camp in Knockaloe during the First World War to demonstrate how, on the one hand, barbed wire disease developed amongst males who could face confinement for years, while, on the other a prison camp society also evolved as prisoners tried to cope with their situation by developing cultural activities.

 


Kenneth Morrison, Professor of Modern Southeast European History, will tackle 'Citizen Resilience in Besieged Sarajevo', which will focus on how citizens adapted to life in the besieged city - with no electricity, gas, domestic water supply and under sniper and shell fire. He will look at the lessons that can be drawn from the case of Sarajevo and how their historical experience helped them deal with the COVID-19 lockdown.

Registrants will receive a link to join the online talk 2 days before the event, via their provided email address.
