220082 A mere Epilogue of War or the Prologue to Peace? Scrutinizing the Nature of Military Occupations in Modern History (S) (WiSe 2019/2020)

Inhalt, Kommentar

Military occupations are a regular companion of war. Sometimes the harbinger of ensuing wars, sometimes the product of military fighting and oftentimes simultaneously conducted as hostilities go on, occupations are more than a mere byproduct of war itself. They subscribe to different contexts and are orchestrated by political systems of various shades. They mark an intense encounter between the ‘occupiers’ and the ‘occupied’ and have lasting implications for cultures of remembrance and general legacies of wars.
This seminar will inquire into the manifold backdrops against which occupations evolved in the 19th and 20th century. The legal, military, political, social, and everyday ramifications of the occupations are likewise a focal point of the seminar. By means of studying selected examples of military occupations, we will seek to point out structural commonalities, principal actors involved and theories and interpretations of occupations.
