SS 314           LESSONS FROM THE GREAT WAR: WORLD WAR I

This year marks the centennial commemoration of World War I. “Every war is ironic because every war is worse than expected,” Paul Fussell wrote in The Great War in Modern Memory.  President Wilson proclaimed that this war was “a war to end all wars.” How is World War I remembered?

Some of the questions that we will address are: How did the assassination of an Austrian Archduke figure in the decision of European powers to go to war? How did U.S. domestic policies related to dissent and propaganda affect life in America and abroad? How is the war remembered and how have these memories shaped policies, past and present?
