The past is never dead. It's not even past.
(PRWEB) March 19, 2014
Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, and "Ethics & International Affairs" journal are proud to announce a new monthly interview series examining World War I and its consequences for the modern world. Featuring scholars, journalists, and other experts, the series will connect the social fractures, political debates, and policy choices of World War I that still resonate in the structure of the international system and our understanding of it.
The series will be guided by the spirit of Faulkner's saying about the past not being dead—and, in fact, not even being past. In addition to discussing the history of the war, it will pay special attention to some of the major concepts, trends, and movements to emerge from it, as well as those that were irrevocably altered by it—such as the concepts of nationalism, imperialism, collective security, global governance, transnationalism, and great power politics.
The series will run through 2014, to coincide with the beginning of the war, as well as the Council’s Centennial. It is co-produced by Carnegie Council's Mladen Joksic and Zach Dorfman, who are also conducting the interviews.
The first interview is with Adam Hochschild, author of "To End All Wars."
The second, released in two parts, is with Jonathan Hansen, author of "The Lost Promise of Patriotism."
