Odyssey: The War to End All Wars

World War I was a seminal event in 20th-century world history. As we consider this centennial year of its conclusion, it is important to stop and ponder its social, economic, and global impact. The interplay of memory, commemoration, and history is complex. So often, the individual voices of those caught up in conflict become swamped by our search for meaning. This lecture will explore the intersections of individual memory and commemoration and in the process explore the degree to which this war defined the lives of so many and of their descendants. It definitely did not end all wars; why did some think it might?
