Summer Seminar in Military History

The National World War II Museum and the Society for Military History are co-organizing a Summer Seminar in Military History in Summer 2022.

This is a seminar for graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and professors working on the history of war, culture, and society.

Here is the announcement from the Society for Military History:

The National World War II Museum and The Society for Military History invite applications to participate in “The Summer Seminar in Military History” from 12 June – 2 July 2022. This three-week, in-residence experience at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans is primarily intended for faculty and advanced graduate students who wish to enhance their ability to study and to teach both US and global military history. The program consists of a series of content and pedagogical seminars led by expert faculty and guest lecturers, as well as museum tours and battlefield staff rides. Lodging, meals, and a stipend are provided.

Applicants will be selected based upon their potential contributions to the field of military history and upon the contribution the program can make to their future teaching and research. Recent PhDs, advanced graduate students who have completed all requirements for their doctorate other than submission of the dissertation (ABD), and senior faculty members interested in working in military history but without a strong background in the field are eligible to apply. A selection committee will consider each applicant’s packet on its own merits.

Interested candidates should submit:

  1. A completed application form
  2. Curriculum vitae
  3. One letter of recommendation that addresses both teaching and research abilities
  4. A short writing sample

Additional program, eligibility, and application information, to include application forms, can be found at

Inquiries may be directed to the program executive director, Professor Gregory A. Daddis, San Diego State University.

Applications will be reviewed beginning 15 March 2022 with selections announced no later than 15 April 2022.
