World War I and Its Aftermath

The Museum and Memorial, with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, are offering a special week-long Teacher Seminar July 7 – 13, 2019: World War I and Its Aftermath. Detailed information, including a link for applications, will be available on the Gilder Lehrman website.

This seminar features Dr. Jay Winter, who will examine the origins, scope, and consequences of World War I with a particular emphasis on the revolution in violence between 1914 and 1918, the obliteration of the distinction between military and civilian targets, the failed peace settlement and the patterns of remembrance.

This is a highly competitive program. Chosen participants will receive a week of in-depth content knowledge shared by Dr. Winter, Gilder Lehrman Master Teacher Fellows and members of the Museum and Memorial's Collections and Education staff, limited travel reimbursement, as well as hotel accommodations and meals.
