Where Do We Go From Here? One day symposium on Belgian refugees
by Letteren@KULeuven (Brussel)

Throughout the Centenary years the transnational history of Belgian refugees and the First World War has been receiving increasing attention, especially in the Netherlands and in the United Kingdom. Many (inter)national, regional and local history projects emerged, each with its own valuable contribution to the overall history of First World War displacement, and often in an atmosphere of sharing information. Many academic research projects appeared too, resulting in numerous publications referring to Belgians in exile. However, only few publications covered the specific history in detail, proving that there is still ample ground to cover the history of the Belgian refugees.

The aim of this one-day symposium is therefore to take stock of current research and position the displacement and temporary settlement of Belgian refugees during the First World War. The event will focus mainly on Belgian refugees in exile in the UK and on those in the Netherlands.

Both the Letteren department of KU Leuven, Brussels Campus, and the Centre for Reception Studies have kindly agreed to supporting the event.

Peter Cahalan has kindly accepted to act as honorary chairman of the event. The symposium expresses its sincere gratitude to Pat Heron and Marleen Van Ouytsel, who both did not live to enjoy the fruits of their efforts in relation to Belgian refugees research and commemorations.

The conference fee is 20 euros, to be paid upon arrival.

Registration is required. We order food for the number of people who have registered before Friday 7 September 2pm.
