US 299 World War I: History, Literature and Film


A little over a century ago, the Great War was raging. No one knew the death and destruction that would take place and certainly no one anticipated a sequel. Many current global trends and events can trace their origins to World War I. This seminar investigates the film and literature of World War I from contemporaries to the present. Classic literature from Remarque to Hemingway will be read and analyzed. Films from All Quiet on the Western Front to War Horse will be viewed to learn how the horrors of the war have been portrayed through the years. Students will inquire how documentaries about the war have changed from the mid-twentieth century to the twenty-first.
