Spring 2019 Series:
A World at War: Taking a Closer Look at WWII
Seventy-five years ago, the world was engaged in the deadliest conflict in history. This spring, the Fairhaven Lecture Series will take a closer look at World War II — the Allies and the Axis, the international battlefields and the home front, the great powers and the greatest generation.
Fourteen lectures in the “A World at War: Taking a Closer Look at WWII” series will feature presentations by faculty from UW-Whitewater’s Whitewater and Rock County campuses and will explore topics from the atomic bomb and the film and literature of the era to women war pilots and one family’s story of surviving the Holocaust.
This weekly series begins on January 28th with:
Making the Movies Safe for War: The WWII Combat Film
Presented by John McGuigan, Professor, Languages and Literatures
