On November 11, 1919, members of the radical Industrial Workers of the World violently clashed with veterans belonging to the American Legion in the small Washington logging town of Centralia. The conflict took place in a political climate not dissimilar from our own, 100 years later. This talk explores the connections between the Centralia Tragedy and our own time, and asks what the events of 1919 can tell us about politics in 2019.

David Luebke is a historian of early modern Europe whose work focuses on the religions and political cultures of ordinary people in the German-speaking lands. He is a 2019–20 OHC Faculty Research Fellow.
At one time or another, approximately 1,000 churches in Europe were shared by two or more Christian religions—Catholic, Lutheran, Calvinist. About 120 still exist today in France, Germany, and Switzerland; in recent years, a few new ones have been created. The story of how they formed, how they evolved, and how they faded away can tell us a great deal about the shifting meanings that ordinary people ascribed to community, religion, toleration, and intolerance from the sixteenth century to the present.
