‘BEYOND GLORY?’ is the third in a series of lectures presented by Professor Winter exploring the cultural history of the Great War. Professor Winter’s previous lectures have addressed art and film.
In ‘BEYOND GLORY?’, Professor Winter focuses on the literary responses to the Great War. “War is simply too frightful, too chaotic, too arbitrary, too bizarre, too uncanny, a set of events and images to enable us to grasp what it is without filters. We have to put them on because, without them, we will be blinded by the searing light of war. Literature is one such filter.”
Professor Winter holds the Charles J. Stille Chair in History at Yale University. He is the author of a dozen books and the winner of an Emmy award for his acclaimed television series, ‘The Great War and the Shaping of the 20th Century’ and is also General Editor of the forthcoming Cambridge history of the Great War.
Professor Winter is currently a Visiting Professor in the Faculty of Arts at Monash University. He is also an international adviser on Monash University’s history of Anzac Day project.
