Marking the centenary of the entry of the United States into the war, this conference brings together scholars from myriad fields to examine the legacies of the war in its global, imperial, national, and local dimensions. The symposium will open with "Enter the Peace Broker: Woodrow Wilson’s Fight for Peace," an innovative roundtable featuring Sir Hew Strachan, Bruno Cabanes, John Cooper, and David McDonald.  Saturday's programming includes keynotes by Bruno Cabanes, Holly Case, Michael Neiberg, and Jennifer Keene as well as three rounds of panel sessions that engage the numerous ways in which the war has continued to inform global and local experiences in the past century. Special programming will be dedicated to the war’s effects on Wisconsin and Wisconsin’s contributions to the war.
