An Idea, Its History, Its Consequences
Sponsored by Department of History
Monday, October 28, 2013
Throughout modern history, armies have contended with “irregulars”—enemies who hide among the citizenry and favor hit-and-run attacks over open battles. This semester, Franklin & Marshall College hosts four outstanding scholars who will discuss the theory and practice of guerrilla warfare and counter-insurgency, from the American Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars to the era of “national liberation” following World War II.
The second lecture in the "Irregular Wars" series will be given by Mary L. Dudziak, the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Law and Director of the Project on War and Security in Law, Culture and Society at Emory University. She writes and teaches about the impact of war on American law and politics and 20th- century constitutional history. Her latest book is “War Time: An Idea, Its History, Its Consequences” (Oxford University Press, 2012).
The "Irregular Wars" special lecture series is sponsored by the departments of History, American Studies and International Studies; the Center for Liberal Arts and Society; and the Public Affairs Lecture Fund.
This event is open to the public.
