The Bombs Still Blow: Environmental Legacies of WWI - Tait Keller

In 1914, agriculture, industry and warfare formed a violent triad of destruction. While combat damage to nature was generally short-lived, major environmental changes occurred behind the battlefields. Join Tait Keller, Associate Professor of History at Rhodes College and editor of Environmental Histories of the First World War as he explores how warfare and energy extraction co-evolved during the war and explains how the intersections of armed conflict, human victimization and environmental exploitation still affect us today.
