Six former NPR journalists are collaborating on the Great War Project, to "cover" World War I as it happened, with a century of perspective. We will report not just the diplomacy and battles, but the broader economic, social and other consequences of the war -- at the time but also in the 100 years since the war. Our emphasis will be on story-telling and bringing the war and its era alive to contemporary audiences via public radio and the web.
We are looking for insights from the academic community, so if you have thoughts about what we should cover, and how, we are interested.
This obviously is an ambitious project. It's also an independent one, not funded by NPR, so we have launched a Kickstater campaign to secure seed funding. Please check it out.
