Description

For all the horrors and hardships of waging war, making peace can be even harder. Join award winning historian Dr. Margaret MacMillan for a riveting lecture on the struggle for peace after the First World War. Collapsing wartime alliances, revolutionary outbreaks, territorial conflicts and a shift in the international balance of power were among the challenges peacemakers faced when they met in Paris in 1919 to create stability in a world in turmoil.

This keynote address will launch Canada 1919: A Country Shaped by War, a conference commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Featuring international and Canadian historians — including Michael Neiberg, Catriona Pennell, David Bercuson and Jonathan Vance — the conference is being held in conjunction with the exhibition Victory 1918 – The Last 100 Days. It is hosted by the Canadian War Museum, with Tim Cook and J. L. Granatstein.
