The First World War in Historical and HistoriographicalThe Romanian Academy The Academy of Science of the Republic of Moldova
Babeş–Bolyai University
The Center for Transylvanian Studies
The Institute of History The Faculty of History and Philosophy

will host in Cluj-Napoca, on 3–5 June 2014, on the occasion of the Cluj Academic Days, the international conference The First World War in Historical and Historiographical
Perspective. The event is part of the National Program ROMANIA 100, in the framework of which the Romanian Academy and Babeş–Bolyai University will carry out a
number of scientific and cultural projects throughout 2014–2020.
The conference will be structured into several sections, dealing with the outbreak of the First World War and the subsequent reactions of the authorities and of the population,
with the Romanian and foreign historiography which, for nearly a century, has investigated all the implication of this war, etc. The official languages of the conference are
Romanian and English. The intention of the organizers is to first and foremost assess the impact and the perception of the outbreak of the war in all the European states involved
(especially in the territories that in 1918 united to form Romania: the Old Kingdom, Transylvania, Bessarabia and Bukovina), and also to carry out a survey of the
historiography in order to provide a better framework for future research.
The organizers will provide accommodation to non-local participants (for the nights of 2/3, 3/4, 4/5 and 5/6 June 2014), as well as meals for the entire duration of the event.
However, participants will have to cover their transportation costs. Please confirm your participation in the event by April 15, 2014, at the latest and send us a brief CV, the title
of your paper and an Abstract in Romanian and English (approx. 300 words). The conference papers will be subjected to a peer review procedure and published in volume
format by the Center for Transylvanian Studies.
The contact persons are Professor Ioan Bolovan, Ph.D. (, and Dr. Oana Mihaela Tămaș (
