This one day event brings together a group of distinguished scholars to reflect on aspects of the US’s participation in World War One on the occasion of the centenary of America’s entry. Four broad themes of US involvement in the Great War are examined: the politics of America’s entry; the cultural contours of US engagement in the war; the journeys or movements prompted by wartime; and the settlements reached at the war’s conclusion.
