Call For Reviewers--Representing WWI: Perspectives at the Centenary
October 31st - November 2nd, 2014
Organized by the Humber School of Liberal Arts and Sciences in Participation with the International Festival of Authors
The year 2014 marks the centenary of the beginning of World War I. Although primarily a European conflict, its impact was global and still resonates throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, affecting political and economic relationships, the humanities, social sciences, and the arts.
World War I remains a central concern for scholars in all fields. This international conference, hosted by Humber's School of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the International Festival of Authors, will facilitate further discussion among scholars, researchers, and public intellectuals across a wide range of academic disciplines.
Topics for individual and panel presentations may include the following:
Empire and colonialism
Nationalism and transnationalism
Aboriginals and the war
Women and the war
The home front
Medical and psychological responses
Economic responses and models
Literary representations (fiction, poetry, graphic novels, etc.)
Visual representations (painting, photography, film, etc.)
