WWI Changed Us: Health Threats and the World War (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: WWI Changed Us: Health Threats and the World War
Abstract: War creates chaos seen and unseen. During WWI, the Ottoman Empire suffered from casualties and contagions as conditions were optimal for the spread of disease. Sometimes borne among the fighting men, it soon found victims among civilians caught in war zones. Dr. Yücel Yanıkdağ, professor at the University of Richmond, examines the spread of several diseases that further devastated the Ottoman Empire beyond the battlefield. Whether 100 years ago or today, war creates conditions for the destructive spread of infection and disease. While the “long war” ended in 1922, its demographic and disease-related consequences continued for decades. This event, part of The World War I in the Middle East Summer Institute for K-12 Educators, has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
