The War to End All Wars: WWI in Four Lectures

Part 3: A Terrible Beauty Is Born

October 16th World War One had many effects that went beyond the conventional battlefield. Mexico’s revolution helped bring the United States into the war. Ireland gained its independence as a result of the 1916 rebellion and subsequent unrest in that country. Countries like Australia and South Africa would gain stature as members of the international community for their parts in the war. Russia became the Soviet Union as a result of the Revolution brought on by the war, setting the stage for the Second World War and Cold War. Finally, the Middle East was set on its path toward modern conflict in the First World War. This presentation will focus on the outlying political ramifications of the war, which remain fresh- and often painful- in today’s memory.

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

History of American Spiritualist Movement: Speaking with the Victorian Dead

Join historian Robert Cox to explore the ideas that Spiritualists in Victorian America had in mind when communing with the spirits of the deceased.

The War to End All Wars: WWI in Four Lectures

Part 4: A Lost Generation

The War not only caused death and destruction to those fighting; the war’s effect on culture and thinking were catastrophic. The war was the end of an era, and to many, the end of one of the great periods of European civilization. Psychology, culture, philosophy- all of these took dramatic turns as a result of the war. This talk will discuss the war and its ending at the Versailles Conference, as well as its after-effects in the cultural, economic, and political spheres, which would ultimately result in the outbreak of war only twenty years after the close of the War to End All Wars.

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

Registration is required.
