Making the World Safe for Democracy? Diversity in the First World War

Saturday, March 29 at 9:00 am

Greek Village Conference Center, Ballroom

Open to the Public, No Tickets Required

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 workshop 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. The workshop highlights the many ways that matters of race, religion, gender, and ethnic and national interests led European powers to war in 1914, and the ways that these issues shaped the war’s conduct until the guns fell silent in 1918.
