The Department of History and the Evans School of Fine Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences recently hosted a speaker and held a roundtable on World War I and the armistice signed 100 years ago that ended the war. Harvard University Professor of History Erez Manela gave a presentation to a packed room in Evans Auditorium on Nov. 7, on “The Great War: A Global Perspective”. Manela joined University of West Georgia history professor Aimee Genell and Berry history professors Larry Marvin and Christy Snider in a roundtable discussion of the war and its aftermath.
Dr. Snider is Associate Professor of History and an expert on 20th Century U.S. history and peace activism. She is the author of numerous essays on women, peace movements, transnational activism, and international relations, and she has a manuscript in preparation on U.S. women delegates to international political conferences.
Dr. Marvin is Professor of History where he teaches courses on history and historiography, including a military history course that spans from the pre-classical age to the 20th century. He is the author of “The Occitan War: A Military and Political History of the Albigensian Crusade”, which came out with Cambridge University Press, and which just appeared in a Polish translation last year.
