West Point Summer Seminar in Military History
Prof. Mark Grimsley, over at the Blog Them Out of the Stone Age military history blog, has posted on the West Point Summer Seminar in Military History for 2008. This seminar, scheduled for 4 to 25 June 2008 at West Point, is "designed to help scholars increase their understanding of the study of war and military history." Although primarily directed in terms of content towards the American audience, the seminar's organizers definitely encourage applicants from around the world. The goal of the seminar is to advance "the field of academic military history by educating and training educators in the field of Western military history. Upon completion of the seminar, fellows are prepared to return to their home institutions and develop or enhance a program in the study of military history." Targeted at both faculty and advanced graduate students, the seminar combines lectures, seminars, and staff rides. Further details and an application form can be found on the seminar's web page.
