1917 was a seminal year in the history of the modern world. The First World War stressed the livelihoods and resources of nations, states and societies - combatant and otherwise - with often direct and devastating impact. Key events influenced the outcome of the war or were in some way set in motion by the emotion and disruptive thinking that accompanied the cataclysmic experiences of 1917. Their legacies continue to be felt today in political, economic, social, cultural, scientific, and technological spheres.
The Myriad Faces of War: 1917 and its Legacy symposium examines this single year, 1917, and expands outwards to reflect on the significant impact of the Great War and associated events, and the way in which particular actions contributed to a reordering of global structures that have reverberated through the intervening century to the present.
