International conference titled War Nationalisms: Nation- and State-Building Efforts in East Central Europe 1914–1918 was held in Budapest, on 23 June 2015, organized by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Research Center for the Humanities, Institute of History and the Hungarian Historical Association.
Exactly one hundred years ago in 1915, the Great War entered its second year. This period brought the realization that speedy victories were unrealistic forcing all those involved to consider new strategies. The purpose of this international conference is to further scholarly debates on the subject of nationalism among the nations of East Central Europe by looking at the experiences of the war from their respective positions.
The conference was part of the work of a project of the Hungarian Scientific Research Fund „East-Central European Nationalisms During the First World War”.
