Established in 1933 as the American Military History Foundation, renamed in 1939 the American Military Institute, and renamed again in 1990 the Society for Military History, the Society is devoted to stimulating and advancing the study of military history. Its membership (today more than 2300) has included many of the nation's most prominent scholars, soldiers, and citizens interested in military history.
Northeastern University's NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks, in collaboration with the NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities and the Society for Military History, invites applicants for participation in a workshop designed to help scholars whose work focuses on the history of war and warfare to learn about and use digital methods for research. The workshop will be held October 10-11, 2014, at Northeastern University in Boston, MA. Full application details can be found here.
The Society is pleased to make its members aware of the New Books in Military History channel of the New Books Network. The site features discussions with military historians as well as announcements and summaries of newly published books in military history.
