Odyssey: Jean Jaurès, Martyr for Peace

Born in 1859, Jean Jaurès was a French politician, historian, philosopher, and journalist who devoted the last eight years of his life to preventing World War I. Arguably the greatest orator of his time, Jaurès was an eloquent advocate for democracy, justice, and peace. He was also the most influential spokesman for the cause of Alfred Dreyfus and was responsible for the unification of the French Socialist Party in 1905. Jaurès was assassinated by a French nationalist on July 31, 1914, on the eve of the Great War. In this course, we will discuss his legacy and the issues that he championed: democracy, justice, war & peace.
