C-Span broadcasts of some of the keynotes and the two plenary panels:

  • Anti-War Movements From World War I to Present. Michael Kazin, author of War Against War: The American Fight for Peace, 1914-1918, talked about the legacy of anti-war activities during World War I and how they influenced peace movements from World War I through the Vietnam War to the present.
  • Women and World War I Peace Movements. Author Erika Kuhlman talked about women and peace movements during World War I. She highlighted the activities of the Woman’s Peace Party in New York City and the anti-war reporting and editorials in their newsletter, “Four Lights.” She also discussed the conventional gender roles at the time and contrasted that with women serving in the military today.
  • World War I and Religious Peace Groups. Members of Quaker, Mennonite, and Christian peace organizations talked about their institutions' responses to the U.S. and Britain’s entry into World War I.
  • World War I and Peace Organizations. Members of peace organizations formed in the World War I era talked about the impact of the war on their groups and how their institutions have changed over the past 100 years.
