On Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 7 pm, the WKU Owensboro Campus will be hosting a reprise of Karen Petrone’s April Far Away Places talk on “The Great War (WWI) in Russian Memory,” also the title of her book, available from Indiana University Press. Dr. Petrone is the chair of the Department of History at the University of Kentucky, and her work focuses on cultural histories of Russia and the Soviet Union. In addition to The Great War in Russian Memory, she has also published a book entitled Life Has Become More Joyous, Comrades: Celebrations in the Time of Stalin, also from Indiana University Press.
This encore performance is part of a larger range of activities the Owensboro Campus has arranged, along with its partners Owensboro Community and Technical College (part of the KCTCS system) and the Daviess County Public Library, which has included author-speakers, presentations from faculty, movie nights, and a salute to veterans that will occur on Nov. 1, 2014 at 2 pm.
This event will be held in the Badgett Conference Center at the Owensboro Campus, 4821 New Hartford Rd, Owensboro.
