Please join us in Wilson Library, Room 504 (note the different location) to learn how researchers and librarians across campus observed World War I throughout the year. Since we will be handling archival materials, please refrain from eating during the program. Bill Balthrop (Rhetorical Studies Department of Communications Studies) will talk about the IAH/Faculty perspective in creating a pan-university commemoration and his own work analyzing of the rhetorical functions performed by the American memorials and monuments constructed in Europe following World War I. Libby Chenault (West European Librarian) will talk about being the Library liaison as well as existing and new WWI source materials. Matt Turi and Tommy Nixon (Special Collections and Davis R&IS) will talk about working with classes.
