Representing World War I: Perspectives at the Centenary

Humber Liberal Arts @ IFOA Conference:
October 31 – November 2, 2014

An International Conference Hosted by Humber’s School of Liberal Arts & Sciences at the International Festival of Authors

The year 2014 marks the centenary of the beginning of World War I. Although primarily a European conflict, its impact was global and still resonates throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, affecting political and economic relationships, the humanities, social sciences, and the arts.

World War I remains a central concern for scholars in all fields. This international conference, hosted by Humber's School of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the International Festival of Authors, will facilitate further discussion among scholars, researchers, and public intellectuals across a wide range of academic disciplines. Areas of focus include but are not limited to: cultural memory, nationalism and transnationalism, medical history, women and gender, and literary narratives.

The International Festival of Authors (IFOA), one of the most celebrated literary festivals in the world, is located at the Harbourfront Centre, one of downtown Toronto’s major cultural and artistic venues
