Images of ‘the West’ have played a decisive role in modern German history. In the first half of the 20th century, the ‘German ideas of 1914’ were pitted against the ‘Western ideas of 1789’. ‘Western civilization’ was deemed to be utterly opposed to ‘German culture’. Mainly focussing on the 19th and early 20th century, the conference intends to historicise the concept and explore 'the West' in its iridescent plurality.
