About the speakers
Dr Jennifer Wellington is a lecturer in modern global history at UCD. Her research focuses on the cultural history of warfare in the first half of the twentieth century. After completing honours degrees in Law and English at the Australian National University, she pursued her doctorate in history at Yale University.
Her PhD thesis "War and the Imperial Imaginary: museums, exhibitions and visual displays of the First World War in Britain, Canada and Australia, 1914-42" was awarded the 2013 Hans Gatzke Prize for Outstanding Dissertation in a Field of European History. She is currently preparing it for publication as a monograph.
Professor Alan Kramer has worked on the era of the First World War, focusing on the analysis of violence, the relationship between armed forces and non-combatants, war crimes, international law, prisoners of war, economic warfare and blockades, and memory, mainly in Germany, Austria-Hungary, Belgium, and Italy. In a synthesis of cultural with military, political, social, and economic history, he places the First World War in a longer-term context reaching to the Second World War. Current projects include a monograph entitled Concentration Camps: A Global History; co-editor of 1914-1918 Online: International Encyclopedia of World War I (with O. Janz, Berlin, five other general editors, and partners in fifty countries). He is a fellow of the Humboldt Foundation, Germany, and winner of the Research Prize of the Humboldt Foundation, 2015-16.
