Conference and Workshop
During the two-day annual meetings, historical, political and cultural topics from the area of German-British relations are discussed. To this end, British and German experts are invited as speakers.
The annual meeting aims to be a forum for scientific exchange and personal learning. It usually takes place on the weekend after Ascension. For many years, our conferences were held in the Catholic Academy “Die Wolfsburg” in Mülheim / Ruhr in May. Since 2015, they partly take place in the Centre for British Studies (Humboldt University, Berlin). Usually, conference reports are published on H-Soz-u-Kult.
Workshops, in which members and guests – and preferably young academics – discuss topics and present results from their work, form an integral part of the conference. The workshops can be divided into areas such as history, comparative politics and foreign policy.
