The papers will be organised along the same principles as the Paris Peace Conference itself, having in view territorial issues and the drawing of new frontiers, national minorities and their status, war reparations, railways and waterways, war criminals, harbours, and the establishment of the League of Nations. Besides the perspectives of the participant states, we are also interested in the attitudes of the defeated states that did not participate (Germany, Hungary, Austria, Bulgaria, Turkey) and those which were not invited, such as Russia.
A first iteration of the conference was held in 2018 and the participants’ papers were collected into a conference proceedings volume, published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing in 2020 (https://www.cambridgescholars.com/product/978-1-5275-4224-2). Due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, this year’s conference will be held on-line. Apart from this, the normal stages of organisation will be followed: articles proposed for publication must be received within six months of the conference; there will be a peer-review process – with the reviewers’ identity not disclosed; and finally the volume will be published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing in the next year.
The organizers will cover the costs of publication of the conference proceedings.
Abstracts should be in English and no longer than 300 words. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 30 April 2021.
The conference programme and publication guidelines will be sent subsequently.
Final papers must be sent in English no later than 1 December 2021.
The conference language is English.
