Public Lecture: The Failure of Containment and the Coming of the Pacific War

December 7, 2021

Reception at 5:30 p.m., talk begins at 6:00 p.m.

 

Join us at the Florida Historic Capitol Museum as we officially open the new temporary exhibit Rendezvous with Destiny: Florida and WWII. Hear from Dr. Sidney Pash, professor of history at Fayetteville State University, who will discuss American-Japanese relations from 1937 to 1941. Marking the eightieth anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Dr. Pash will shed light on the ultimately failed American attempt to peacefully contain Japanese expansion following the start of the Sino-Japanese War in July 1937.  Dr. Pash’s lecture is sponsored by the Institute on World War II and the Human Experience, Florida State University.
