In the first event of the spring 2017 Great War Lecture Series, Profs. Tina Doyle (Department of Communications & Mass Media) and Harriet Lewis (former assistant clinical professor and co-coordinator of Clinical Education) will two human sides of the Great War. Prof. Doyle will discuss developments in photography during the time period. New techniques helped to capture the horror of the conflict and the war’s effects on human bodies. Prof. Lewis, meanwhile, will examine the development of physical therapy and healing techniques as the medical profession sought to heal those who had been wounded and scarred by the war.
