Centre for the Novel Annual Lecture: William March's Company K - History, Memory, and Metafiction
06 April 2017, 18:00 - 23:55

Speaker: Steven Trout, University of South Alabama

On the centenary of the day on which the United States of America formally joined the First World War by declaring war on Germany, this lecture explores the most daring and shocking novel about the war written by a serving American soldier.

Professor Steven Trout, America’s foremost scholar on US literature of the First World War, joins us to mark this event, and to ask what makes William March’s novel Company K different from other, more familiar, texts about the war. What might we learn about the war we think we understand so well by viewing it from across the Atlantic?

This lecture will be followed by a wine reception.

This event is FREE.

This is the opening event of a four-day conference hosted by the Centre for the Novel, The Fictional First World War: Imagination and Memory Since 1914. More information about this conference and about the Centre can be found HERE.

Hosted by: Centre for the Novel, University of Aberdeen

Venue: Linklater Rooms, King's College
