Neiberg is a specialist in the social history of World War I. He currently teaches at the U.S. Army War College. Before becoming a professor there, Neiberg was a history professor at the University of Mississippi.

Recently, his book “Dance of the Furies: Europe and the Outbreak of World War I” was named one of the top five books written about World War I by the Wall Street Journal.

However, at the event, Neiberg plans to discuss his latest work. Released in 2015, “Potsdam: The End of WWII and the Remaking of Europe” focuses on the impact of WWI in creating modern America.

According to Political Science Professor, James Greenburg, “He’s ideally suited to talk to us about the social, economic, and political impacts of a really big event, that although it took place a century ago, many effects still, not only stay with us today, but have had a pretty important role in shaping the society that we have.”
The event will be held in Old Main Chapel at 7 p.m., and is open to the public. SU students and faculty can attend for free.
