The Sociology of the Lost Generation: How Societal Factors Impacted the Creative Works of Ernest Hemingway and His Contemporaries
This lecture is presented as part of the World War I and America Exhibit and Lecture partnership between the Owensboro Museum of Science and History and WKU-Owensboro, sponsored by a grant from The Library of America in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from The National Endowment for the Humanities. Jennifer Joe, WKU Owensboro Campus Librarian, will present The Sociology of the Lost Generation: How Societal Factors Impacted the Creative Works of Ernest Hemingway and His Contemporaries at 7 p.m. Thursday (Aug. 31) at WKU Owensboro, 4821 New Hartford Road. The "Lost Generation" was a term coined for the cohort that came of age during World War I. More specifically, though, it has been applied to writers and artists from that period - those writers such as Ernest Hemingway, T.S. Eliot and F. Scott Fitzgerald, whose experiences deeply impacted their writing. Speaking from the sociological point of view, Joe will talk about how greater trends in culture and society during this tumultuous time ultimately shaped the most famous works of literature from this generation, and how these connections can be applied to our modern lives.  
Time: 7:00PM-8:00PM
Location: WKU-Owensboro's Badgett Foundation Conference Center, Room 104
