Presenting WWI in the Modern Museum - Men & Women in the WWI Air War

Title: Magnificent Men (and Women) in their Flying Machines: A New Approach to Exhibiting the First World War Air War
Date: Friday, November 11, 2016
Time: 3-5pm
Location: Sidney Smith 2098 (Natalie Zemon Davis Conference Room)
This presentation discusses the Canadian War Museum’s current special exhibition Deadly Skies – Air War 1914-1918. In particular, it highlights how Deadly Skies takes a new look at the war in the air. Rather than focussing on the air war as it is often remembered—a series of one-on-one aerial duels—this exhibition revolves around experiences of nine individuals who were involved in, or impacted by, this new form of warfare. In taking this approach, the curatorial team has sort both to humanise and democratise the conflict.
Speaker: Dr. Nic Clarke, Canadian War Museum
Nic Clarke, Ph.D., is a historian at the Canadian War Museum. He has worked on a wide range of projects related to the First World War, including the exhibitions Gallipoli – Three Perspectives (2015) and Deadly Skies – Air War 1914-1918. His book, Unwanted Warriors: The Rejected Volunteers of the Canadian Expeditionary Force was published by UBC Press in 2015. In addition to his work on the First World War, Nic has published articles on the treatment of people with disabilities in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Canada.
