The Great War changed not only the course of history, but also altered many prevailing conceptions of the human condition.
This war’s toll  ushered in new ways of thinking, with a consequent impact on many fields of the humanities. The present call for papers is addressed to those who are working in the humanities and knowledgeable about the impact of the Great War on this field of study. We want to assemble specialists from several disciplines to highlight this impact from diverse perspectives. In which way did the First World War influence:
 
Literature
 
Cinema
 
Music
 
Art
 
Historiography
 
Psychology
 
Sociology
 
Linguistics, etc
