Forgotten Warriors: The Long History of Women in Combat

Join Sarah Percy (Univ. of Queensland), Audrey Cronin (American Univ.), and Charli Carpenter (Univ. of Massachusetts Amherst) for a discussion on Dr. Percy’s new book Forgotten Warriors. Percy demonstrates that women were in fact common actors on the battlefields of history, explains why and when they disappeared from those battlefields, and how they fought their way back into combat roles. She demonstrates how combatant women are not just historical exceptions, but part of the warp and weft of military history. More information here

Suharto’s Cold War: Indonesia, Southeast Asia, and the World

Join Mattias Fibiger (Harvard Univ.) and Brad Simpson (Univ. of Connecticut) for a discussion on Dr. Fibiger’s new book Suharto’s Cold War.
