MCMXIV: The Origins of the Great War @ The President Woodrow Wilson House
Jul 26 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

 

French_soldiers_ditch_1914

In the summer of 1914, World War I erupted with a spasm of violence.  A century later, we ask “Why?”  What were the origins of the Great War that forever changed the world?

Millions died, empires fell, nations arose, and the League of Nations emerged. Join us to discuss the circumstances that led to war and the lessons we can learn.

The Embassy of the German Federal Republic and The President Woodrow Wilson House host a panel discussion with the Executive Director of The President Woodrow Wilson House, Robert A. Enholm, as the moderator. The panel will feature the following:

- Professor Dr. Michael Epkenhans, Director of Historical Research at the Centre for Military History and Social Sciences of the German Armed Forces at Potsdam and Professor at Potsdam University.  Professor Epkenhans authored Grand Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz:  Architect of the German Battle Fleet (2008) as well as (with Ralf Stremmel) Friedrich von Krupp:  Ein Unternehmer im Kaiserreich (2010).

- Professor Mustafa Aksakal is an Associate Professor in the Department of History and the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and the author of The Ottoman Road to War in 1914 (2008).  He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University and has recently held fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, and the American Council of Learned Societies.

- Professor Elizabeth Thompson is an Associate Professor of History at the University of Virginia and the author of Justice Interrupted:  The Struggle for Constitutional Government in the Middle East (2012).  She received her Ph.D. from Columbia University and has recently held fellowships from National Endowment for the Humanities, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and the United States Institute of Peace.

The panel will be in the Dining Room, and the adjacent Drawing Room will be set up as an overflow room with a viewing monitor.  Doors open at 4:45 pm, and seating is on a first come basis. Refreshments and reception to follow.
