As you know we have been marking this momentous centenary over the last few weeks — my recent posts having to do with my efforts to purchase one of the ‘Tower of London’ commemorative ceramic poppies.
Well the Dartmouth Hopkins Center is doing their part too — and, as ever, doing so with aplomb and style. They appreciate that this centenary provides a time for great collective reflection on that war’s causes and ramifications. So, in order to promote that reflection they are hosting a a series, “World War I Reconsidered”, that not only examines that conflict but also captures some of the creative foment of the pre-war and post-war periods, and looks at war in general.
Here is their program. Click to ENLARGE. Use the ‘HOP 50’ logo above to access their official Website.
