DAVENPORT, Iowa— As the world commemorates the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, a St. Ambrose University panel of historians will examine the decisions made during and after the war that led to modern-day conflicts in the Middle East. On Wednesday, Sept. 24, at noon, “The Peace to End All Peace” will take place in the Rogalski Center, located at the corner of Ripley and Lombard Streets, one block west of Harrison Street. The event is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the St. Ambrose Middle East Institute.

The discussion will be facilitated by Sandy McKinley, SAU associate professor of history; Ryan Dye, director of the SAU Middle East Institute, director of international education/study abroad and professor of history at St. Ambrose; and George Eaton, SAU adjunct professor of history and Rock Island Arsenal historian.

The St. Ambrose University Middle East Institute is the first academic institute in the state of Iowa devoted to the study and discussion of one of the world's most geopolitically important regions. Initial funding has been provided by the Adler-Schermer Foundation.
