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.
War and Gender in American History
How has gender shaped Americans’ understandings and experiences of war? And, how have wars framed social constructions of gender?
The United States in the World Wars
How did the World Wars affect Americans, at home and abroad?
