IHR Winter Conference 2017: Civil Wars
The IHR Winter Conference will take place on Friday 20 January 2017 and this year will focus on Civil Wars. Do Civil Wars share certain features or is this a term of art that obscures the uniqueness of each separate historical situation? This conference will question the conceptualisation and language of civil discord.
