The Allied Occupation of Germany Revisited

29–30 September 2016

Organisers: Dr Christopher Knowles (King’s College London), Dr Camilo Erlichman (Edinburgh/Cologne)
Venue: German Historical Institute London


The Allied occupation of Western Germany after the Second World War has long constituted a classic component in academic histories of post-war Germany. After having been the subject of sustained scholarly attention in the 1970s and 1980s, the subject has subsequently faced a decline in academic interest.

An extended call for papers and additional information may be found at the conference website:

The conference is supported by the Institute of Contemporary British History at King’s College London, the German Historical Institute London, the German History Society, the Society for the Study of French History, and the Beyond Enemy Lines project at King’s College London, funded by the European Research Council.
