2014 marks the centenary of the start of World War I. Yet for Americans, the First World War occupies but a small place in the nation’s cultural consciousness. This joint CPC symposium takes up the questions of how and why we should remember the First World War. Whose stories should be told, and how should we tell them? In addressing some of the war’s numerous and complicated legacies, particularly for African-Americans, Jewish Europeans, and women, the goal of the symposium is to enhance our understanding of the past and its impact on the contemporary world.

The program for the symposium includes presentations and panels featuring work by undergraduate students and faculty from the three CPC colleges and institutions throughout the region, plus presentations by four notable speakers about WWI.

Jenny Waldman, Director the UK’s Program 14-18NOW Centenary Art Commission

Keynote speaker: Carol J. Adamsauthor of “The Sexual Politics of Meat” and “The Pornography of Meat;” Adams drew fame in feminist-vegan-theory circles when she linked “species” oppression to gender oppression.
