    The Global Origins of the Great War with Dr. Heather Perry

    The Carolina Room is once again partnering with the Charlotte Museum of History to present Dr. Heather Perry of UNC Charlotte, who will address the major questions behind the causes of World War I. Why did the assassination of the Austro-Hungarian crown prince in 1914 plunge Europe—and eventually the world—into four years of unprecedented slaughter? What motivated European governments to join the first total war of the twentieth century? How did an isolated incident of domestic terrorism explode into a lengthy, industrialized conflict that transformed global politics and re-drew national boundaries which continue to affect Europeans today?  The program is free and open to the public. Registration is required. The Charlotte History Museum is located at 3500 Shamrock Drive. Registration is required: https://www.cmlibrary.org/event/46442-global-origins-great-war.

    This is the first of many lectures the Robinson-Spangler Carolina Room will sponsor throughout the city in conjunction with their exhibit, The Great War in Charlotte, which opens April 6th at the Main Library. The exhibit and programs commemorate the 100th Anniversary of World War I.
