The Ideologies in National Socialism project aims to create a repository for English-language scholarship on the ideas that defined the Nazi period and our understanding of it. The end result will be an online database of scholarly articles and four edited volumes examining those ideas in different contexts and from a range of perspectives. More information can be found on our website

To that end, we have also held a series of conferences in 2021/22 and will host another 27./28. April 2023, where the focus will be the subject of our second edited volume: Institutions. Here we will examine ideas and ideologies in different organisational and institutional settings – be they ministries, political parties, the SS and security services, businesses, economic and cultural organisations etc – and pose questions like: how did ideology work in an institutional context? What, if any, ideologies served as a basis for institutional action? What ideas informed individual actions in different organisational settings?

In short, we are interested in any topic broadly related to the study of ideology and institutions, and would like to invite scholars to join us at this exciting conference. Interested parties should send a brief abstract (max. 250 words) of their proposed paper and a small biographical note to before 1 August 2022. Successful applicants will be notified by 1 October 2022. Accommodation costs will be covered for all participants, while travel costs will be reimbursed if no other funding sources are available, subject to budgetary availability. With the participants’ permission we intend to publish the presentations as essays in the edited volume.
