John Archer Library, Archives Reading Room, University of Regina main campus

In this commemorative lecture series an interdisciplinary team of scholars will offer their “Centenary Reflections” on the significance of the Great War as a turning point in history and culture. Specialists from the fields of History, International Studies, English, French, Psychology, Music, Film, Economics and Psychology will consider the influence and legacy of the Great War in a wide range of contexts. Approaching the war from diverse disciplinary perspectives underlines the profound and sometimes surprising impact of the war, as its influence reached from the Berlin streets to the Canadian prairies, from the musical stage to the graphic novel and from the artist’s studio to the psychiatrist’s couch.

Installments of this series will be offered through Fall 2014. All lectures will be hosted in the Archives Reading Room of the John Archer Library at the University of Regina. The lectures will also be recorded and made available for download on the library’s oURspace digital repository.
