International Workshop: Waste Recycling, War and Occupation

International Workshop: Waste Recycling, War and Occupation
Datum: 14.06.2018 - 15.06.2018 Links:

The international workshop “Waste Recycling, War and Occupation: A Transnational Perspective on World War II,” organized by Heike Weber (KIT) and Chad Denton External Link (Yonsei University) aims to bring together the different historical sub-fields that have carried out research on wartime recycling so far, in particular, business history, the history of war and society, the history of technology, and environmental history. The workshop will analyze the scope and impact that recycling had during World War II, both for several regions and for different industrial branches. Additionally, it will ask what impact wartime recycling had on later patterns of resource use.
