misc_none 12:00 PM  -  1:30 PM WWI and America: A Scholarly Book Discussion with Lt. Colonel Max Frazier Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Join us for a scholarly book discussion commemorating America's entrance into WWI through a reading of Willa Cather's One of Our Own. The first 10 registrants receive complimentary copies of the book. Registration opens May 1.
 
About the book:  One of Ours is the 1923 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Willa Cather's about the making of an American soldier. It tells the story of Claude Wheeler, a native Nebraskan, around the turn of the 20th century. The sensitive, restless, and unhappy protagonist has access to his family's fortune, but he refuses to accept it. Alienated from his uncaring father and pious mother and rejected by a wife whose only love is missionary work, Claude is an idealist without ideals. When the United States enters the Great War in 1917, Claude enlists in the army where he finds purpose and meaning in his life.

About the presenter:
Lieutenant Colonel Max Frazier is an Associate Professor of English and Senior Military Faculty at the U.S. Air Force Academy.  She studies questions about the role of memory in identity formation, especially how different forms of memory expose fears and limitations about characters’ present-day moments.  She specializes in autobiography and women writing from the turn of the nineteenth to the twentieth century. She teaches English major seminars on topics such as American Literature, American Modernism, novels, food in literature, and minority literature, as well as the core senior capstone course on war literature and speech.
