A three-day international conference on Internationalism and the Arts: Anglo-European Cultural Exchange at the Fin de Siècle wil take place at at Magdalene College, Cambridge, on 3-5 July 2006.
This conference addresses two interrelated issues which are central to our understanding of European cultural and national identities, past and present: the nature and extent of artistic and intellectual exchange between Britain and Europe at the turn of the nineteenth century; and the rise of a (Eurocentric) internationalist cultural identity in an era of competing nationalisms. Flanked by the Franco-Prussian war (1870-71) and the Great War, the fin de siècle stands out as an epoch of rising European militarism. Themes of national consolidation, isolation and aggression have become key to any analysis of the period. This interdisciplinary conference will highlight alternative trends, discussing the extent to which cultural exchange contributed to a sense of a common European, even world culture, and to a counter-current of political, internationalist optimism.

To book or make further enquiries, please contact Dr Grace Brockington, Clare Hall, Herschel Rd, Cambridge CB3 9AL, UK. Tel.: (0)1223 767 294, email: The deadline for bookings is 16 June 2006.
