 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 will take place at the Charlotte Museum of History on Shamrock Drive.
