READ: our 1st AIR check-up and next steps.
When/Where: Saturday, 4 November 2017, University of Worcester, Henwick Grove, Worcester, WR2 6AJ
Topics: 2017 marks the centenary of American entry into WWI and the host of facets of female participation, thus we invite you to submit a paper based on your current research in the field of ‘North American Women and World War One’. The United States entered World War One to make the world “safe for democracy” on April 6 1917. As in other belligerent countries, women would participate in the war effort in unprecedented ways in the twentieth century’s “war to end all wars”. Women’s lives were affected by the conflict whether they contributed to the home front; worried about, or lost, loved ones; carried out “war work” of a host of different types; inspired patriotism and rallied public support or became involved in humanitarian organizations such as the American Red Cross, YMCA, Salvation Army and others or served in the military.
