The Great War did not end on 11 November 1918, but continued in various forms for another four years in Eastern Europe and Asia Minor. The Treaty of Lausanne, signed on 24 July 1923 by Turkey and her former enemies on the shores of Lake Geneva, marked the true end of the war. This treaty was significant in that it saw the compulsory exchange of civilian populations become a part of international law, cementing the phenomenon of the “civilisation of war.” Historian Jay Winter, who has focused on various aspects of the Great War throughout his career, will give a lecture on this topic.

Registration is required for both in-person and online attendance.
