This video shows the session which featured new PhD research projects which as part of the Herrenhausen Symposium on „The Long End of the First World War“ which took place in Hanover, Germany, from May 8-10, 2017. The six PhD researchers were chosen by the steering committee of the symposium out of 40 applications. In a special session closed to the public and chaired by John Horne (Dublin) and Heather Jones (London), they discussed their projects at length. The efforts to include the colonial experience in First World War historiography marked all six PhD-projects. Ceren Aygül (Ankara) examines the humanitarian aid of the Ottoman Red Crescent Society. Veronika Hager (Berlin) studies how republican Turkish historiography tried to come to terms with the War. Hanna Smyth (Oxford) focuses on the relationship between Commonwealth War Graves Commission sites and imperial-colonial identities. Chris Rominger (New York) examines the political visions of post-war Tunisian exile communities. Jaspal Singh (Delhi) focuses on the Dalit Sikh identity formation in Punjab. Alp Yenen (Basel) recently defended his PhD on the Young Turks exiles and transnational Muslim revolutionary societies.
