World War I and the Birth of the Modern World

 A Lecture Series on occasion of the 100th Anniversary of World War I
World War I was the “seminal catastrophe” of the 20th Century and shaped the modern world like few other events. In this lecture series, distinguished experts from UCSD explore the impact of World War I on politics, culture, and society in Europe, the Middle East, and in the United States. How did World War I give rise to the defining features of the ensuing century? Why did the “war to end all wars” lead to unprecedented violence? And what are its enduring legacies in the present?
