    A Writer's War: 1. Dulce et Decorum Est

    A WRITER'S WAR looks at how those who fought and those at home in Britain, France, Germany and former colonies of the British and French Empires responded to the First World War, the horrors of the trenches and the advent of mechanised violence. The University's Medieval & Modern Languages Faculty ran a series of workshops, in partnership with Oxford Spires Academy, during which Year 10 modern language students discussed a range of texts from British, French and German writers, and also arranged for the students to visit Magdalen College, which holds an extensive collection of letters and other items relating to the College's participation in the First World War. Students, participating academics, and the archivists from Magdalen College then recorded their reflections for this podcast series.

    In the first four podcasts, we hear from Year 10 students at Oxford Spires Academy. We begin with DULCE ET DECORUM EST.
