1914 and the Making of the 20th Century Seminar

A Glasscock Center Three-Year Seminar (2012-2015)

Seminar Director
ADAM SEIPP | Associate Professor, Department of History, Texas A&M Univeristy

“1914 and the Making of the 20th Century” includes a major international conference to be held in College Station in fall 2013 and a publication timed to coincide with the anniversary of World War I’s outbreak in 2014. The conference intends to move beyond historical studies of the war and offer an assessment of the conflict’s impact on the world of the twentieth century and beyond.

This project is rooted in history, but will bring practitioners from a range of other disciplines including, agriculture, anthropology, art history, conflict archaeology, epidemiology, international relations/security studies, literature, medicine, philosophy, political science, psychology, sociology, and women’s and gender studies.
