JXN Community Forum: World War I & America: America’s Place in the World

April 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join us at the Carnegie Branch!

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the United States entry in World War I, the JXN Community Forum will host a panel discussion on Woodrow Wilson and the continuing impact of his policies in foreign affairs and military engagements.

“Woodrow Wilson was one of the most influential Presidents and thinkers in American history. Besides his several legislative achievements at home. Wilson both inspired and frustrated Americans with his vision of the United States as a global power. Our roundtable will consider the political, economic and religious roots of Wilson’s new world order, its reception and impact in his time, and its continuing meaning for today.”

Prof. Mark Edwards and Prof. Mark Correll from Spring Arbor University will be joined by SAU students in the discussion.

 

This program is part of World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of Library of America presented in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

 

The JXN Community Forums are free and open programs on challenging issues of our day.

 

This forum is co-sponsored by Ella Sharp Museum, Spring Arbor University, Jackson College Veteran Resource Center, League of Women Voters, Unitarian Universalist Church of East Liberty and the Jackson District Library.
