The interconnections of migration, law, bureaucracy and race form the subject of some of the most exciting current research into the Nazis in history. The American roots of National Socialism are explored by James Whitman, one of tonight’s speakers and author of a study of the influences exerted upon the Third Reich by interwar US immigration laws. Alongside Whitman, Hans-Christian Jasch will speak about new insights to be gleaned into the emergence of the wartime German genocide through a focus on the careers, personalities and intellectual outlooks of the civil servants who participated in the Wannsee Conference, a key turning-point in the Final Solution of the Jewish Question.

About forty years ago, historians of women began to claim a place for their subject as a distinct scholarly field. This movement emerged particularly powerfully in Britain, its early preoccupations and questions shaped by the Feminist Movement, the New Left, and especially by Thompsonian social history. This conference will convene more than 30 historians to reflect on "The Moment of British Women's History."
