The #KU_WWI Twitter Project’s first Call for Tweeters will be this Wednesday (April 9th) at 7pm in the Malott Room of the Kansas Union (6th Floor). Students, faculty, and members of the KU community are welcome to come!
The general idea is to have KU students, faculty and staff create a script for reenacting the assassination of the archduke which will tweet-out live on June 28, 2014, 100 years after the event. You don’t need a twitter account, and you don’t necessarily need any knowledge of WWI or the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. All you need is creativity and the ability to summarize what you learn into 140 character tweets!
There are two upcoming opportunities for participation:
Wednesday, April 9, 7pm, Malott Room Kansas Union
Wednesday, April 30, 7pm, Alderson Auditorium Kansas Union
Participants are encouraged to come to one or both events (available for GAP credit). There will be light refreshments and door prizes. Select participants will receive copies of:
The First World War by John Keegan
The Sleepwalkers, How Europe Went to War by Christopher Clark
Catastrophe 1914 by Max Hastings
July 1914: Countdown to War by Sean McMeekin
The Assassination of the Archduke by Greg King and Sue Woolmans
Good Soldier Švejk by Jaroslav Hašek
