This panel will welcome papers that address how the war shaped popular culture in all of the combatant nations and how, in turn, the memory of war was shaped during the century that followed. Possible topics include popular war literature for women, children, and youth; the legacy of the war in popular culture, including film; cross-cultural or comparative approaches to popular war literatures from the combatant nations; and approaches to teaching the First World War in popular culture. The panel will offer an opportunity to reflect on the role and meaning of popular culture in an understanding of the First World War and its afterlife in the cultural imagination.
