University of Cincinnati
Department of History
June 23 – July 20, 2014

For Participants At the schedule link below, you will find an outline of our curriculum. You will see that, for the most part, weekday evenings are unscheduled, and as the Institute progresses, there will be more unscheduled time on the weekends. This is because the workload for the Institute is rigorous, and participants will spend a great deal of time outside our instructional sessions working on their individual and group projects.

A note to the public: We look forward to welcoming you to public evening and weekend events on UC’s campus and in the community listed below. These events are designed to open windows on the Institute for you to see exciting new findings in WWI history unfold as we work. The Weekday Sessions are closed to the public, to allow our NEH scholars to focus on the intensive work of developing new curriculum and research directions, but we have a full roster of town-town activities as well.

"Cincinnati Remembers World War I" is a nine-month series of community and university events organized by Cincinnati Opera and its scholarly consultants. The first such event was on Armistice Day 2013, when Cantus presented carols and recitations of soldiers' correspondence in "All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914." Between now and Cincinnati Opera’s "Silent Night" on 10 & 12 July 2014, the public can attend performances, exhibits, and commemorative events as shown here: Cincinnati Opera-WWI. New activities are still being added to the Cincinnati Remembers calendar, such as an evening of WWI-era social dancing, so stay tuned to this page and Cincinnati Opera’s webpage for further developments!
