The Occupation Regime: Ambitions and Responses

Bjørn-Petter Finstad
In Norway, there is an ongoing research project entitled “In a World of Total War: Norway 1939-1945”, funded by the Norwegian Research Council and led by UiT The Arctic University of Norway. This project aims at giving a new and more comprehensive understanding of the history of Second World War in Norway. In work package B with the title “The Occupation Regime: Ambitions and Responses”, we are focusing on how the occupation regime actually functioned, with special emphasis on the collaboration between the regime and the Norwegian society during the five years of occupation. The purpose of this seminar and workshop is to discuss and develop concepts and approaches connected to adaptation and collaboration between the occupier and the occupied. The seminar takes place on Thursday, March 8, with presentations from invited German historians. This part is open to the academic staff and students at Humboldt University. The workshop on Friday, March 9, is only for the participants connected to the work package B. The seminar languages are German and English.
Das Seminar wird auf Deutsch und Englisch stattfinden.
