The Department of History presents

Magnificent Men (and Women) in their Flying Machines: A New Approach to Exhibiting the First World War Air War

Nic Clarke, Historian At The Canadian War Museum And Author Of "Unwanted Warriors: The Rejected Volunteers Of The Canadian Expeditionary Force," UBC Press, 2015.

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 sought both to humanise and democratise the conflict.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Department of History at 416-978-3363
