The Great War and America’s Rise to Global Power (WAIT LIST ONLY)

Friday, April 27, 2018, 9am-2:30pm
Michael Adas, Professor Emeritus, Department of History, Rutgers

1918 was not only the last year of World War I, but also the year when military interventions of the United States began to contribute in significant ways to the victory of the allied powers (by then effectively reduced to Great Britain and France). The workshop will focus on ways of integrating America’s impact on the war into courses on both U.S. and global history. Participants will consider the major role America played in the years before it actively entered the war, the controversies relating to questions as to why and if it should have gotten involved, the often overstated impact of its plunge into trench warfare, and its outsized (and often misguided) role in fashioning the ill-fated Settlement at Versailles.
