This November marks the 100th anniversary of "the War to end All Wars." How do we begin to try and make sense of The Great War its aftermath? Join us for this scholar-led program, funded by Humanities New York and led by University at Albany History Professor Richard Fogarty, PhD. We will read and discuss texts over six themed sessions, to try and understand how the Great War remade the world, not only during the terrible years of 1914-1918, but also in the years that followed. A special part of the series will be a screening of the film, A Very Long Engagement, a moving, French-language drama about a young couple during World War I. We're screening the movie on November 11, 2018, the centennial of the end of World War I.
PLEASE NOTE: The first meeting on September 12 is an introductory session and will last just 30 minutes. All subsequent meetings will run from 6:30-8 pm. Registering for the first session will enroll you in all six of the scholar-led sessions. The movie on November 11 is open to all, and does not require registration.
