HISTORY 190-B Peacemaking & WWI
Making war is hard, but even harder is making peace at the end of a long and bitter conflict. This course focuses on how nations came together in Paris in 1919 to create the peace treaties that would end the First World War. The centerpiece of the class is an online historical role-playing simulation where students will engage in negotiations and backroom deals with others students in the course. Students will learn about the factors contributing to the outbreak of WWI as well as the conduct of the war itself in order to contextualize the decisions that they will have to make about how to achieve peace for the country that they will represent at the peace conference.
