The Granville Historical Society is proud to present a lecture on “Women, World War I, and the American Century” by Dr. Megan Threlkeld, Associate Professor of History at Denison University. The talk will be at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27.
The era surrounding World War I marked the first time that U.S. women participated in public life not just as mothers, but as citizens. Women’s activism for suffrage, their participation in the war effort, and their campaigns for international cooperation after the war established precedents for their involvement in U.S. foreign affairs throughout the rest of the century. We will trace the story of that involvement, highlighting the ways in which women have influenced foreign policy and represented the United States on the world stage.
This event is free and open to the public.
Megan Threlkeld is an associate professor of history at Denison University, where she teaches courses on twentieth-century history, U.S. women, and U.S. foreign relations.
