Historian Margaret MacMillan will be presenting this year's Hagey Lecture, entitled "Choice or Accident: The Outbreak of World War One", in the Humanities Theatre, Hagey Lecture Hall.
Margaret MacMillan is regarded as a leading historian of the British Empire at the turn of the 20th century. She is an officer of the Order of Canada, a member of the Royal Society of Literature, and a professor of history at Oxford University. In addition to numerous articles on Canadian and world affairs, Professor MacMillan has written several award-winning books, including The Uses and Abuses of History and Paris 1919: Six Months that Changed the World.
The Hagey lectures are the University of Waterloo's premier invitational public lecture series. Since 1970, outstanding individuals, who have distinguished themselves internationally in some area of scholarly or creative endeavour have given talks intended to challenge, stimulate and enrich not only the faculty, staff and students of the University of Waterloo, but all members of this community. The Hagey Lecture Series is cosponsored by the President of the University of Waterloo and the Faculty Association of the University of Waterloo.
Free Admission. All Welcome. We hope to see you there!
