WWI Remembrance Week

Save the Date! (1)

The War Studies Society, together with History Society, will be remembering WWI this week by hosting a series of events.

Thursday 8/11

World at War – Sharing Perspectives on WWI

We have invited King’s faculty members to talk about the different countries and regions who participated in the war and share their perspectives with us. The event is taking place in the Great Hall at Strand at 6:30 PM. A drinks reception will follow. The event can be found on Facebook.

Friday 9/11

Student Panel

We invite students from King’s to participate and discuss the following question: Is it fair to say that the First World War ended with the Armistice of November 1918?

This is a great chance to enhance debating and public speaking skills for participants. It is also a brilliant chance to listen to the insights and perspectives of the new generations of historians and scholars students at KCL represent. The event can be found on Facebook.
