Conflict and Transformation

The year 2014 marks the centenary of the outbreak of World War One and the fiftieth anniversary of the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964. Both of these transformative events represented the culmination of powerful social, political, and cultural trends, while they simultaneously initiated processes of change (and renewed conflict) whose impact continues to be felt around the globe.

Lawrence Sondhaus, Professor of History, University of Indianapolis,will provide the keynote address. The author of many influential works on the Austro-Hungarian military and the Great War, his recent comprehensive history of that conflict, World War One: The Global Revolution, offers an exciting new critique of the complex course and manifold, continuing consequences of that struggle.

Allow me to encourage your involvement in the IAH.  The study of history is a vitally important endeavor, and the IAH promotes that endeavor.  Since 1980, the association has brought together those engaged in a variety of historical pursuits.  The annual meeting, held early in the year,  and the Thornbrough Lecture,  held every fall at Butler University, provide opportunities for collegial fellowship and for sharing recent scholarship.  The History Educators Network of Indiana (HENI) is another way to network with historians throughout the state.  As an old IAH brochure put it, ”if you love history and wish to engage with others your passion, the Indiana Association of Historians is for you.”
