A hundred years after the war's outbreak, this conference brings together some of the world's leading experts and emerging scholars to reassess its literary and cultural impact and explore its vexed relationship to modernity.

Was the war a ‘crack in the table of history' or did it reinforce deep continuities? What is the relationship between artistic form and historical violence, and between combatant and civilian creative responses? What are the colonial and transnational dimensions of First World War literature?
