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 three neighbouring nations of the Austro-Hungarian MonarchyCzech, Slovak and Hungarianby looking at the experiences of the war from their respective positions. Since the 19th century brought fundamental changes in national reawakening among Central European nations, specialists from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary will embark upon comparative analyses of these processes.
