2014-18 marks the centenary of the Great War, and Wright State University will commemorate the occasion with the CELIA project A Long, Long Way: Echoes of the Great War. The project brings together a group of scholars from several departments in the College of Liberal Arts, and will explore the broader impact of the First World War through music, verse, lectures, film, and exhibits.
The First World War – the “Great War,” as an earlier generation knew it – changed everything about our world. It brought mighty empires crashing down and redefined the conventions of civilization. Read about the lasting echoes created during the Great War. Books from this recommended reading list can be found in the Dunbar Library or through our consortium partner, OhioLINK.
