When the United States entered World War I, President Woodrow Wilson explained that Americans were fighting to “make the world safe for democracy.” This one-day symposium brings together three of the nation's leading experts on the war to examine the ways that Wilson's promise did and did not ring true. Featured speakers will highlight the many ways that matters of race, religion, gender, and ethnic and national interests framed participants' experiences and the war's conduct until the guns fell silent in 1918.
The symposium will feature Professors Michael Neiberg of the US Army War College, Jennifer Keene of Chapman University, and Richard Fogarty of the University at Albany, SUNY.
The symposium is open to the public and will be held Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 9 AM in the High Point University Conference Center. Lunch will be provided, and free parking is available. RSVPs appreciated (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Sponsored by the High Point University Faculty Cultural Enrichment Series, the Society for Military History, the High Point University Department of History, and the High Point University Women's and Gender Studies Program.
