I am the LCpl. 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.
