Symposium 2021: Fractured Fronts

Friday-Saturday, Oct. 29-30, 2021

As the Great War “ended,” many questions confronted the global community that remain just as pressing today as they did one hundred years ago. How does war impact how we understand ourselves and our place in the world? What does it mean to “come home” when the places and people you called home have changed irrevocably? How does raising such ideas help us better comprehend the period today? Using historic and contemporary lenses, join us for an illuminating exploration of these questions and a collective conversation on war, identity and the enduring impact of World War I.
