Allies, Empires, and Peace Treaties: A Look Back at the War to End All Wars

Sat, February 10, 2018 | San Jacinto Residence Hall and Meeting Center, UT Austin Campus

9:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Join us for “Allies, Empires, and Peace Treaties:  A Look Back at the War to End All Wars," a workshop in commemoration of the hundredth anniversary of the end of the First World War. Held in anticipation of the hundredth-year anniversary of the armistice in November 1918, this day-long event will prepare K-16 educators to teach topics related to the war and its ongoing global impact. UT faculty members will discuss the history of the war as well as their own approaches to teaching WWI, including "WWI in Real Time" and using film and photography as historical documents. We will also visit the Harry Ransom Center where the curator of their hugely successful exhibit, "The World at War, 1914-1918," will speak on some of her favorite materials from the collection.
