The War to End All Wars? 100 Years Later: Global Perspectives on the Legacy of the Great War
Time: 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Location: Morgan Hall 101A
Description: November 11, 2018 marks the 100-year anniversary of the end of the First World War. This first modern global conflict profoundly changed the face of Europe, saw the emergence of the United States as a global power, reshaped the Middle East, and had repercussions as far away as China and Japan. Panel participants will discuss the immediate aftermath and the broader legacies of the war from different thematic and national perspectives. Short presentations will be followed by a general discussion. Panel participants are Ginny Boynton, Ute Chamberlin, Febe Pamonag, and Rich Filipink from the WIU History Department, and Brian Locke from the WIU School of Music. Join us for a wide-ranging and interdisciplinary look at the end of the Great War.
