The year 2019 marks the centenary of the Treaty of Versailles, which set the terms for peace after the First World War. Unfortunately, the meaning of “peace” was dictated largely by European Empires with limited visions for avoiding future conflict, not only in Europe but around the world. This conference commemorates the 1919 centenary with panels, roundtables, film screenings, and keynote speakers that explore the global impact of the First World War and its aftermath.
Keynote Speakers: Dr. Susan Kingsley Kent (University of Colorado) and Shrabani Basu (author, Victoria & Abdul).
Registrations include all panels, roundtables, the Victoria & Abdul
screening, the conference dinner on 4/19 and lunch on 4/20 (meals subject to
availability). They Shall Not Grow Old screening included with paid
registrations but subject to availability (click your appropriate registration
category to request a spot).
