The Long Shadow of World War One, 1914-2023

The British still refer to it as ‘the Great War’. The American diplomat and historian George Kennan called it ‘the great seminal catastrophe’ of the 20th century, from which stemmed a multitude of horrors. Yet those years also saw the flowering of nations – Italy’s fourth and final war of independence, the rebirth of Poland, the creation of Czechoslovakia – and also the stillbirth of other nations, including Ukraine. This week of lecture-seminars will explore the long shadow cast by World War One over the decades that followed, right up to the present day, and ask how the conflict should be presented to the wider public through museums and cultural tourism, while doing justice to the pain that remains for families who were bereaved.
