In 1914, agriculture, industry and warfare formed a violent triad of destruction. While combat damage to nature was generally short-lived, major environmental changes occurred behind the battlefields. Join Tait Keller, Associate Professor of History at Rhodes College and editor of Environmental Histories of the First World War as he explores how warfare and energy extraction coevolved during the war and explains how the intersections of armed conflict, human victimization and environmental exploitation still affect us today. Offered in conjunction with Devastated Lands, a Museum and Memorial exhibition. Presented in partnership with Linda Hall Library. Book sales available before and after lecture with author signing. FREE with RSVP | J.C. Nichols Auditorium
