ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
This conference explores the extraordinary global legacies of the First World War from an interdisciplinary perspective.  We aim to consider not just how the war changed the world, but how it fundamentally altered the kinds of questions asked by scholars, policy makers, and intellectuals about the human experience.  In a crowded landscape of centennial commemorations, we believe that this is one of the most important and innovative events.
