World War I as a Global Phenomenon

DATE: Nov. 9, 2015

TIME: 7:00 – 8:15 p.m. ET

GRADES: 6-12

FEE: Free

Our webinar series for teachers of world history continues this fall with a timely session that seeks to re-center our view of the war in this centennial moment. World War I was a global phenomenon, the zenith of centuries of imperial endeavor. Whether in a World History, US, or European History course, the war and its aftermath cannot be understood without reference to the relationships between competing metropoles, colonies, and other entities. Professor Heather Streets-Salter, Department Chair and Director of World History Programs at Northeastern University, will examine events beyond the master narrative and explore the truly global impact of the war, particularly as it affected East Africa and South, East, and Southeast Asia. Classroom resources and teacher perspectives will be shared.
