K–16 Educators' Workshop: Perspectives on World War I: The Everyday and the Global

Saturday, January 6, 2018: 9:30 AM-12:30 PM
Maryland Suite C (Marriott Wardman Park, Lobby Level)

Sponsored by the College Board

Organized with the Society for Military History, the United States World War I Centennial Commission, and the Library of Congress

How does the narrative of World War I change with a focus on ordinary people who fought and suffered in it? How does the story differ across global perspectives? This interactive workshop will begin with a keynote by Leila Fawaz, Tufts University, on research from her recent book on the Middle East during and after World War I. This will be followed by a primary source analysis workshop, drawing on documents from the Library of Congress representing global perspectives on the experience of World War I.

No charge; because space is limited, free advance registration is required.
