The Albert Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest cordially invites you to the roundtable "WWI and the Making of Modern Diasporas" on 11/17 at 6 p ET

The aftermath of WWI was a turning point in the modern history of involuntary migration, mass displacement, and global diasporas. Why did WWI displace so many people? What was the international response to the mass displacement of people after the war, and how did it contribute to the development of modern refugee relief efforts?
