Part 2 – Public Round-Table Discussion on Establishing Peace, with Professors Martin Conway (University of Oxford), Peiter Lagrou (Université Libre de Bruxelles), Jeremy Taylor (Nottingham), Miriam Dobson (Sheffield) and Mary Vincent (Sheffield - Chair)
4.30pm start with wine reception to follow at 6pm
Arts Tower Lecture Theatre 3
The research roundtable, which is open to the public, will discuss how peace is constructed after conflict and within divided communities across the globe. The theme reflects a IHR current events theme and postdoctoral work at Sheffield funded by the Max Batley Peace Studies legacy across the faculties of Arts & Humanities and Social Sciences. The panel will bring together historians of Europe and Asia from across the UK and Europe, facilitating a broad discussion that will encourage comparison.
All are welcome. This event is also supported by the University of Sheffield’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities and School of East Asian Studies and the One Asia Foundation.
