The society brings together postgraduates and more established academics who study the first world war. We have nearly 300 members in Europe, North America, Australasia and beyond. The society was founded in 2001 following a conference held in Lyons. Since then, further conferences have been held in Oxford, Dublin, Washington DC and London. Our most recent meeting was held in Innsbruck in September 2011. Our next conference will be held in Paris in September 2013.
Since 2007 we have been steadily working to formalize the organization of the society. The first stage was to ask our existing members to pay a subscription fee and to establish this website. Then, in 2010 we launched our journal, First World War Studies published by Taylor & Francis.
You can find out more about other members of the society in the section dedicated to Members’ CVs. Please do send us your own CV or a link to your personal section of your departmental website, so that we can develop a directory of our members. Email: CV[at]firstworldwarstudies[dot]org.
Postgraduate students, who are not always afforded space on their university department’s website, may find this function particularly useful.
