Join Oakland University's Dr. Karen Miller as she moderates a series of three discussions of readings drawn from the book World War I and America: Told by the Americans Who Lived It. In compiling World War I and America, distinguished scholars were invited to write brief essays related to World War I. The writers - soldiers, airmen, nurses, diplomats, statesmen, political activists, journalists — provide unique insight into how Americans perceived the war and how the conflict transformed American life. This evening the readings and discussion will follow the following themes:
The Experience of War
Race and World War I
Register for the whole series or any of the evenings online, and stop by the library to pick up the readings being discussed so that you can read them ahead of time. Discussions will also include other forms of media related to each evening's themes.
