WWI and America: Discussion with Dr. Donald Zillman, "Living the World War: A Weekly Exploration of the American Experience in World War I"

3/12/2018, 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Learn more about the experiences of American citizens, at home, during the war with Dr. Donald Zillman on Monday, March 12 at 9:30 a.m. Using the Congressional Record and the New York Times, "Living the World War" delves into the lives of Americans during the war, who, before mass communications, did not know what was happening overseas in real time. The book also explores how the experience of war and emerging national issues profoundly shaped America in the 21st century. Dr. Zillman is the Edward Godfrey Professor of Law at the University of Maine School of Law. In his career he served as an Army Judge Advocate and a professor of law at Arizona State University and the University of Utah before coming to Maine as the dean of the University of Maine Law School. He also served as the president of the University of Maine at Presque Isle and as a visiting professor at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. Both of these programs are free and open to the public but registration is required for the morning discussion. To register contact Melinda Rice at mrice@jesuplibrary.org or at 207-288-4245.
