Dr. Yu examines churches during WWI

Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Wednesday October 15, 2014

Dr. K. Kale Yu, Assistant Professor of History, participated at a special conference devoted to the 100th anniversary of World War I at Georgian Court University. His paper, "Enemies in the Pews: Targeting 'Unpatriotic' German, Swedish, and Norwegian Immigrant Churches during the First World War" investigates the shifting understanding of who is an "American". Wartime tensions during the First World War created a hostile environment toward "foreigners" at home and this paper examines the persecution faced by German, Swedish, and Norwegian immigrants and their respective churches.
