In Flanders Fields the Bombs Still Blow:

The Environmental Legacies of the First World War

A talk by Tait Keller


This talk will explore the ways in which the First World War ushered in a century whose magnitude of environmental change matched its terrible violence. We live with the ecological consequences of the conflict even now. By understanding how warfare and ecosystems coevolved over the course of this global conflict we can better appreciate the trajectory of military violence, human victimization, and environmental change during the twentieth century.


Tait Keller is an assistant professor of History and the Director of Environmental Studies and Sciences at Rhodes College.
