Share this

Beginning in September 2019, Norwich University is offering a new concentration in Public History as part of the Norwich’s online Master of Arts in History program, which has graduated more than 150 students since 2014.

This concentration, which can be completed in 18 months, combines intensive coursework in public history methodologies created by expert professionals with hands-on internships in museums, archivists, historical societies, or other venues. Public history graduates can gain the skills and knowledge to compete for employment opportunities in many sub-fields, ranging from working at a local historical society, to aspiring to work at government agencies like the Smithsonian.  

For more information, please contact Dr. David Ulbrich, Master of Arts in History Program Director.

Eight Bells Lecture Series: “American Ways of War in the 20th and 21st Centuries” 

The term “way of war” often describes the characteristics of how armed forces fight wars, but because these characteristics can be complex and contradictory throughout different armed forces, a singular way of war can rarely be identified. At the U.S. Naval War College on Thursday, April 4, Dr. Ulbrich discussed how the plural “ways of war” is more useful and how the characteristics of the plural term apply to the American military and society during the 20th and 21st centuries.

Race and Gender in Modern Western Warfare

Co-authored by Dr. Ulbrich and Dr. Bobby Wintemute, assistant professor with the history department at Queens College-CUNY, Race and Gender in Modern Western War works to provide answers to the problems created when blending race, gender, and military war. The purpose is to help readers identify for the disjuncture, flaws, and critical interactions in the traditional memory and history of a largely monochrome and male-exclusive military experience.
