Lecture poster: The Great War and the Modern World

To mark the centenary of the start of the First World War, the History Lecture Series returns this fall with presentations by four of our own faculty members on the topic "1914: The Great War and the Modern World." The lectures will consider themes of domination, integration, and betrayal, the transition from empires to nation-states, the tension between "home fronts" and "battle fronts," and the impact of the Great War on European intellectual traditions.

The lectures will be presented on Wednesdays, 7- 8:30pm, in Kane Hall 130 beginning on November 5, 2014 to coincide with Veterans Appreciation Week (November 3-11, 2014).
