Carnegie Council Project "The Living Legacy of the First World War" Launches New Weekly Podcast Series On April 3, 2018

Apr 3, 2018

Carnegie Council's "The Living Legacy of the First World War" is a fellowship project that explores various aspects of the American experience in WWI. Launched in June 2017, the centennial of America's entry into the war, the nine non-resident fellows are conducting original research in the months leading up to Armistice Day, 2018. Led by Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Colonel Reed Bonadonna, the project is supported by a grant from the Richard Lounsbery Foundation.

As part of this initiative, Col. Bonadonna has created a series of weekly podcast interviews with each of the fellows, which starts airing on Tuesday, April 3. The interviews will also be available on the Carnegie Council website, with full transcripts.

"The fellows' research topics include airpower and international law, defense contracting, censorship, post-traumatic stress, and the humanitarianism of Jane Addams," said Col. Bonadonna. "This list gives some idea of the influence and relevance of the First World War in our own time. One hundred years after what H.G. Wells called a war to end wars, war and its costs and consequences are still very much with us, and the need for compassion and principled engagement is just as great." The schedule is as follows:
