A Wordly War: Battle Experiences through the Eyes of African Cultures
by MSt alumna JC Niala
This podcast examines the First World War through the lives of African soldiers and labourers. Based on historical fact, it discusses fictional poetry and letters that could have been written by Africans involved in the war. It looks at WW1 through a global perspective – the interaction of peoples from different parts of the world. What impact that had on their existence and the shifts that it made for better or worse in their perspectives on the world as a whole.
This podcast was the runner-up in the TORCH and Academic IT Services WW1 Research Competition 2016”
