1918 and the New Europe

The events of 1918 defined the history of modern Europe. From the wreckage of the First World War and collapse of empires nine new nation states emerged. This series will reflect on the events and legacy of 1918 from a multi-national perspective. It will re-examine the significance of 1918 as the beginning of a new European order, from the perspective of the collapsing Empire and four successor states, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Yugoslavia, and Hungary, which were forged—territorially, culturally, and politically—by the peace treaties that followed.

The 1918 and the New Europe lecture series has been organised by Trinity College Dublin’s Department of History (Dr Molly Pucci and Dr Graeme Murdock) and Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies (Dr Balázs Apor) in association with the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute and the MPhil in International History.
