On November 11, 1918, the armistice that would end World War I officially came into effect. One hundred years later, it is important to reflect on a war that irrevocably altered the world as it was, and left in its wake a legacy that still impacts us today.

Supported by the Richard Lounsbery Foundation, this program will highlight the new historical research of Carnegie Council’s First World War Fellows. Speakers will include:

The Living Legacy of the First World War program. The speakers are as follows:

  • Katherine Akey – "Collective Memory and the Hidden Photographic Narratives of World War I"
  • Christopher Capozzola - "Merchants of Death? The Politics of Defense Contracting, Then and Now"
  • Tanisha Fazal – "The Politics and Medicine of Treating Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) Since World War I"
