LCpl. Benjamin W. Schmidt Professor of War, Conflict, and Society
in Twentieth-Century America
Texas Christian University
Hi! Since 2015, I have been honored to be the Lance Corporal Benjamin W. Schmidt Professor of War, Conflict, and Society at Texas Christian University.
I research and write about the ways twentieth-century wars have shaped, and been shaped by, American society and culture. I am especially interested in women's military and wartime experiences and in the ways the U.S. military deals with gender.
My current book project is titled "Drafting Women."
At TCU, I teach courses on war and society, gender and the U.S. military, war and memory, and modern U.S. history. Each year, I also host the LCpl. Benjamin W. Schmidt Symposium on War, Conflict, and Society.
