This year’s kickoff event—“Do the Guns of August Still Echo? Reflections on the Outbreak of World War I, One Hundred Years Later”—features a panel of Lewis & Clark faculty from different disciplines:
- David Campion, Robert B Pamplin, Jr Associate Professor of History;
- Maureen Healy, Associate Professor of History; and
- Dawn Odell, Associate Professor of Art History
As the title indicates, the topic will be the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, an event that not only reshaped the political, social, economic, and even physical landscape of Europe, but also directly affected the lives of countless people in America, Africa, the Middle East, and beyond. Called “The Great War,” it would be difficult to overstate its impact, which continues to reverberate down to today.
Inquiry in the liberal arts runs both broad and deep. This panel will help introduce you to the breadth and depth of your year in Exploration and Discovery, your four years at Lewis & Clark College, and a distinctly liberal path through the world.
