misc_none 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM The War to End All Wars: WWI in Four Lectures Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Part 1: Over There, Over My Dead Body!

Presented by Hamish Lutris.

The First World War broke out as a result of many factors- secret diplomacy, the media, advancing technology, national pride, and others. Some of these seem to have been avoidable, while others were not. But one thing was clear to the United States: it was a European affair, and should stay that way. It was only with reluctance that the United States brought its incredible might to bear on the First World War. This presentation will discuss the causes of the war and the reasons the United States at first stayed out, but was gradually and inexorably drawn into the conflict by 1917.

Hamish Lutris is an Assistant Professor of History at Capital Community College.    Registration is required.

 

    Location: Ehlers Meeting Room
        There are many spaces available.

misc_none 11:00 AM  -  3:00 PM WWI Digitization Event Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

As we approach the centenary of the United States' entry into World War One,  Connecticut State Library looks to tell the stories of ordinary men and women who both served on the front and at home. To do this we are holding Digitization Day events around the state in partnership with museums, libraries and other community organizations. At these events Connecticut residents are invited to bring in their photos, letters and other keepsakes from WWI for digitization. The digital images and stories collected at these events will be added to the State Library’s online archive and made freely accessible for public use.  

Please join us in this project to preserve the history of The Great War. Co-sponsored by the Connecticut State Library, the Monroe Historical Society, and the Monroe Senior Center.  This event is funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Learn more about our CT WWI Digitization event here.

“Born in Kentucky and shuffling among homes in Ohio, the author ended the cycle of poverty, abuse, and drug use after becoming a U.S. Marine and Yale Law School graduate.

“After being done out of his job by a scheming underling, a prominent theater festival director goes off-grid, teaching literacy and theater to prisoners and grieving a lost daughter. When he learns that the man who took his job will attend the next production, he sees his chance: in this Tempest, it won’t just be Prospero who gets revenge.”

There are flying cars, robot maids, jet packs, teleportation, ray guns, and space vacations. Unfortunately, an accident causes Tom to travel to an alternate timeline, socially and technologically backward - in other words, our own 2016.” (Publishers Weekly)
