History Goldclass: The Great Catastrophe - Germany & Austria-Hungary in WW1

University event offered by Goldsmiths, University of London

Event Summary:

An opportunity to find out more about the BA (Hons) History programme at Goldsmiths on 21st June 2016.

Full Event Details:

This masterclass looks at the First World War from Germany's and Austria-Hungary's perspectives. It examines why these states' peoples followed their leaders to war in 1914 and why they endured over four years of conflict. From Lviv in the east to Lorraine in the west, societies underwent total mobilisation. They face mortal threat. Terrifying Russian invasions ravaged their border provinces. A ruthless British naval 'starvation blockade' isolated them from the world and contributed to the deaths of a million Central European civilians.

The session will run from 21st June 2016, from 2:00pm - 3:30pm.

Suitable For:

Bookings by Teachers for Key Stage 5 (Students aged 16-18)
