Dr. Lisa Budreau will be speaking on the saga of the First World War dead and the efforts of the living to honor their heroes. It’s a staggering, often-macabre tale steeped in the pathos and human drama of a democratic nation struggling to find meaning in the aftermath of this war. Dr. Budreau will unravel the complex logistical, political and social dynamics that unfolded from 1919 until the early 1930s, and explore the development of the heritage landscapes that men created in an attempt to remember the apocalypse of their era. Dr. Budreau's illustrated talk will be based on her book, Bodies of War, World War 1 and the Politics of Commemoration in America, 1919-1933.
