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.

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.

This month's selection is Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult.

“Inspired by a real-life event, a medical crisis results in an infant’s death and a murder charge against a black nurse named Ruth Jefferson. The story unfolds from three viewpoints: Ruth’s, the infant’s white supremacist father, and Ruth’s public defender, a white professional woman questioning her own views about racism.” 
(Publishers Weekly)
