WWI Panel Discussion

¬†On Nov. 8 following the screening of G.W. Pabst’s Comradeship (1931)¬†professors Jarica Watts (English), Rob McFarland (German), and Bob Hudson (French) all participated in a wide-ranging and elucidating discussion about the challenges of representing the Great War. How the war has been remembered and what it has signified has changed for each generation and our repeated efforts to explore the past adds complex layers to the events of 1914-1918 that was supposed to be the war to end all wars. The films from IC this week each approach the war from a different perspective and highlight different aspects of the experience and how the events continue to be relevant to us today.
