Nov. 11 will be the 100th anniversary of an armistice that ended World War I. Commemorate that centennial with a panel of scholars who will examine and discuss why the “war to end all wars” not only failed to keep the world “safe for democracy” but actually created a number of complications that affect geo-political, economic, and immigration issues to this day. Participants will include:

  • Charles Knight, Curator of Military History, North Carolina Museum of History
  • Angela Robbins, Assistant Professor of History, Meredith College
  • Gregory Vitarbo, Professor of History, Meredith College
  • Sarah Shields, Professor, Department of History, UNC–Chapel Hill
  • Dan Bolger, Veteran and Distinguished Visiting Scholar, North Carolina State University
  • Carolyn Happer, Professor Emerita, History, Political Science, and International Studies Department, Meredith College
