Lecture on contribution of American women during wartime

Join the Institute on World War II and the Human Experience for our annual Spring lecture on the contribution of American women in twentieth century warfare. “Fun in the Foxhole: Bringing Home to the Front Lines of War” will follow the young, adventurous American women who traveled to warzones throughout the twentieth century to entertain soldiers, boost their morale, and remind them of the stakes of victory. The lecture will feature Kara Dixon Vuic, the LCpl. Benjamin W. Schmidt Professor of War, Conflict and Society in Twentieth- Century America at Texas Christian University and the author of the newly released “The Girls Next Door: Bringing the Home Front to the Front Lines” (Harvard University Press, 2019).

This event is free and open to the public.
