Camilo Erlichman launches Occupation Studies Research Network

Camilo Erlichman, together with Christopher Knowles (King’s College London), has launched a new interdisciplinary research network which aims to promote the exchange of ideas and act as a hub for the global community of scholars who are working on military occupation as a form of rule.

The network is not limited to any discipline or particular national cases of occupation. Organised around five research themes (government, rules, social interactions, legacies, and memories), it focuses on the dynamic power relationship between occupiers and occupied and the lived experience of occupation, within the overall time period from the French Revolution to the present day.

The network is supported by an international advisory board of distinguished scholars, and its membership already includes more than 30 academics from across Europe, the US, and Australia, covering different disciplines such as History, Political Science, and Law. It will organise events and conferences, as well as initiate joint research and publication projects.

It also runs a website, Twitter page and blog. The first three blog articles have now been published, including a manifesto for the new field of occupation studies, written by Camilo, and another article on the case of the Luxembourgish occupation of Germany published by Félix Streicher, PhD researcher at FASoS.
