Interested in the @KU_WWI Twitter Project? Want to participate? Throughout the month of April we’re having an open casting call where all tweeters are welcome!
Everything you need to participate is available to download on the #KU_WWI Twitter website. You’ll find directions, how-to guides and more!
You can also access the #KU_WWI Tweeter Guide online. Try to view this guide as a place to start. If there’s a particular character or element of the event that you find interesting, do a little more research online or with books we cite in the guide. The National World War I Museum is also an excellent resource. We highly recommend you visit their new exhibit, On the Brink: A Month that Changed the World.
Send your contributions to KUWWI@ku.edu anytime before the script deadline:
May 9, 2014.
Work alone or work in groups, and just have fun! Pro-tip: use the skills you already have. If you’re a theater person, add some theatricality to your tweets. If you’re good with geography and maps, tweet some good links. Know about East European culture? Fill us in! If you’re a history buff, a strong chronology of events would be appreciated. Know a foreign language? Translate the tweets for yourself and others! Think of this project as a performance piece using all the academic and creative skills you have to offer.
Do you have to be a member of the KU community? Absolutely not! Invite any and all who might be interested to participate — the more the merrier.
If you have any questions, send us an email: KUWWI@ku.edu
