With her talk, “Global Origins of the Great War” on Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 6:00 pm at Charlotte Museum of History on Shamrock Drive, UNC Charlotte history professor Heather Perry will address the major questions behind the causes of World War I.
The Carolina Room is partnering with the Charlotte Museum of History to present this talk. Why did the assassination of the Austro-Hungarian crown prince in 1914 plunge Europe, and eventually the world, into four years of unprecedented slaughter? What motivated European governments to join the first total war of the twentieth century? How did an isolated incident of domestic terrorism explode into a lengthy, industrialized conflict that transformed global politics and re-drew national boundaries which continue to affect Europeans today?
The program is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
