The 2016 Fall Lecture Series 

Thurs, 3 Nov, 2016: The Frontier of Patriotism: Alberta and the First World War

Lecturers: Adriana A. Davies and Jeff Keshen

With the centenary of the First World War, communities across Canada arranged commemorations of the war experience to honour local servicemen who, through their triumphs and sacrifices, were presented as laying the foundation for a free and independent country.

Often overlooked are the triumphs and sacrifices of those who supported those soldiers, and the war effort in general, back at home.
This presentation provides a detailed look at the Alberta homefront, and how the war affected the lives of people in the province.
