Symposium to Highlight History of Armed Service

The history department will host “Military Service and National Obligation: A Symposium,” featuring lectures and a roundtable discussion about the history of armed service, on October 5 and 6.

The symposium will explore themes from President Emeritus James Wright’s most recent book, Those Who Have Borne the Battle: A History of America’s Wars and Those Who Fought Them (PublicAffairs, a member of Perseus Books 2012). Dartmouth faculty members from the history, English, geography, government, and women and gender studies departments will lecture and present papers on ancient to contemporary military history, both in America and abroad.
