34th Annual Meeting

Indiana Association of Historians

The 34th IAH Annual Meeting was held at the Anderson University Flagship Center
March 8, 2014, in Anderson, Indiana.

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, provided 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.
