Historically, Exile Studies have concentrated on social, political and cultural themes but in recent years – most notably with the Conference of the Gesellschaft für Exilforschung in Vienna in 2014 and the subsequent publication of its Proceedings Kometen des Geldes – economic questions have moved from the periphery to the centre of academic enquiry. With this in mind, the Research Centre for German & Austrian Exile Studies at the Institute of Languages, Cultures and Societies, University of London, invites contributors to speak at its conference on 13 and 14 September 2023 on Refugees from Nazism in Trade, Industry and Engineering. The conference will be held both online and live at Senate House, University of London.

Booking for the conference will open on 1 August 2023. 

Selected papers from the conference will be published in the Research Centre’s Yearbook 21 (2024), edited by Dr Anna Nyburg and Professor Charmian Brinson.
