World War I 100th Anniversary Project
100 Years Later: World War I
The centennial of World War I began last year; there will continue be a vast international discussion of the Great War over the following three years and more.  So we want to bring the environmental dimension of the war’s legacies to people’s awareness – both academics and the broader public. Our opportunities will extend for the four years of the centennial, and we should consider many ways of presenting our work. Primary goals including organizing workshops and collaboration at conferences and building up a relevant bibliography.
