The Second Battlefield: Nurses in the First World War, Spencer Museum of Art

Extended through April 5

Nursing played a crucial role during the First World War. Emergency medical practices evolved enormously during the war years (1914-1918) and thousands more medical workers were involved than in previous wars. This exhibition, like “World War I & The End of Empires,” is drawn primarily from a highly significant gift of over 3,000 WWI works donated to the Spencer Museum of Art earlier this year by Professor Eric Gustav Carlson. It is the first of a number of anticipated thematic selections from the Carlson gift.

The University of Kansas Center for Russian, East European & Eurasian Studies (CREES) has been a national leader for the study of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe since 1959. The center is an active member of the KU WWI Centennial Commemoration coordinated by the European Studies Program.
