Event description:

Since the days of Ancient Civilisations the world has been shaped by the rise and fall of empires, the disputes of faith and the outbreak of conflict. From Mesopotamia to Rome and Byzantium to Gallipoli, civilisations have been shaped by three critical elements: empire, faith and conflict. Perhaps more than any other period of world history, the past century has seen empires brought to their knees, faith pitted against faith, and conflict sweep the globe. On the eve of the centenary of the Great War, the World History Association, the Australian Historical Association and the University of Notre Dame Australia invite you to join us for a unique opportunity to examine the intersection of empire, faith and conflict in world history, and their impact in shaping the modern world.Session themes might include (but are not limited to) imperialism; science and faith; mission; church history; military history; gender studies; colonisation and post-colonialism; trans-national, regional and national histories; historiography; art, artefacts and visual evidence; strategy, security, terrorism and diplomacy; faith in war; and myth and legend.
