Biography

Robert Rennie is a graduate of The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He is a historian of Modern Germany and the First World War. His research focuses on the role of technology in shaping the experience of the First World War in the air. His upcoming book, Germany’s First World War Aviators: The Lives of Fliers, contextualizes the lives of German pilots through three fundamental human experiences: the sensation and perception of space and time, the act of inflicting and receiving violence, and the practices of processing traumatic experiences – that of memory, mourning, and meaning-making, as well as superstition – to make sense of harrowing moments both during and after the war.
